    I have the chicken fever. I wish I had known you could catch it from this site!

    We are looking to have 3-5 pullets for our small back yard. I prefer Faverolles or Orpingtons, my son wants Silkies. He wants to try showing chickens and I want some eggs. If anyone in Eastern NC has some chicks of any calm breed that fits my needs (possible to show, good layers, can be kept up in a run during work hours) please let me know. I can't order 25 of something from a hatchery and I would rather deal with a more local person anyway. I will drive a reasonable distance from Edenton to come get them for a reasonable price.

    Thanks for the info on Meyer's. It is still very expensive for 6 babies. We are on such a tight budget this year, my hubby has been out of work some and the car business has really slowed down. When you live on a commission check, you never know if you are going to buy groceries. My husband looked at prices on Meyer's and started to kill my dream. But I told him it was another baby or chickens. So we are back on track with chickens;)

    hazelton farms:
    I e-mailed you from my hotmail.

    I would like to link up with somebody local for a little refresher primer on chicken raising. I have been off the farm for 12 years now and keep pestering my mom with questions. She ordered 25 pullets last year and got delivered 25 roos. I think she still has chick in the freezer.

    Hi! I have chicks. I have an incubator full, also. My son took 16 chickens to the state fair and we came home with 11 blue ribbons. Our chickens are healthy and gentle. We handle them daily. We have lots of different breeds.

    Nope..only on Sat.'s But Sharon and Steve (over in Chocowinity) do have a really nice set up and some beautiful birds if you get over there to check 'em out. I have a few too and like I said, if you don't end up finding what you want... when I start to hatch..I've got some orps. and I can give you a few chicks from 'em. I'll just throw in extra eggs when I know you'll be ready. But check out what Sharon and Steve have first (SandSPoultry). They may have something that turns your eye!! [​IMG]
