Hi y'all and especially Californians.... Barring the big hatcheries, where and how do you get your birds? Do you know local breeders? Do wait until the poultry shows? I'm new to chickens and I'm really interested in networking and purchasing some show-quality layers to fill up my flock. Is it just me and my poor researching skills.. or is California pretty bare of breeders? I've been trying to contact people through breed clubs and I'm not having much luck. So how do you do it? Also , if you are a breeder in California, could you give a shout out and also list the breeds you specialize in? I'd like to compile a list of California breeders for the Californian BYC people. Thanks!
