    We are finally all set and ready for our chicks, but there seems to be along wait or they are unavailable everywhere! I really would like some Buff Orbs and Silver Wyns. Am I just buying in the "off" (wrong) season or is there always this type of wait? Just venting, but any feedback would be helpful!

    Have you looked at Murray McMurray? They usually have whatever you're looking for.

    I went to a feed store this weekend & asked about chicks (not that I want any more right now - was just curious). I was told that the season is over.

    Try craigslist.com & online hatcheries like mypetchicken.com.

    It's getting very hot in the northern hemisphere for shipping birds. Local breeders often have six-week old junior pullets for sale at this time of year. It's lower risk and you have birds that will lay in September. Plus you are assured of the gender...

    I ordered from Meyer & got chicks the very next week. Of course that was six weeks ago...
