Welcome to the wonderful world of chickens. I hope you get the OK. You won't have to go out of state and probably not even out of your area to get chicks. There are many good feed stores and chicken keepers on the Cape and south shore where you can get your chicken supplies. Cape Cod Feed Supply in West Barnstable has spring chicks, chicken feed, medications, heat lamps, waterers, feeders, etc.. I'm sure you could also easily obtain chickens from a connection on BYC. As someone mentioned, My Pet Chicken is also a good place to order from, especially if want a mixed flock who are all the same age. It's just so much easier to start a flock who are all the same age. I did it the other way with batches of chicks two weeks apart and it was kind of a hassle.
