    We are a small operation in southeast Pennsylvania (northern Chester Country, near Pottstown). Our goal is to provide a local source for unusual and high quality breeds of laying chickens. We specialize in answering your questions and helping you be successful with your backyard flock. This is not our full time job, but rather a hobby that we wish to share with you. We do not ship eggs or birds, local pickup only.

    The absolute best way to reach us is via email at [email protected]
    If you can't use email, you can also call or text (484) 4CHICKY (424-4259) (evenings and weekends only please).

    Hi! I'm in central PA and I'm on a search for Frizzle chicks. Do you know anyone around here that could help me out? I'm only looking for 1 female so ordering online isn't going to work for me :(

    Hi, I already have two buff orpingtons who have just started laying in recent weeks. I've been fighting chicken math, but we'd love to have a BCM.

    Will you have some chicks available in the spring? We can come out from NYC to pick up. Preferably around the last week in April.

    I don't have any frizzles. You should ask on the PA thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/248345/pennsylvania-unite

    I did no response yet :( The only one I'm really having trouble with is a Frizzle cochin. I found 1 lady by me but I was hoping to get them all beginning of March and she said hers haven't started laying yet but as soon as they do she will hatch. I think I will get my others from Lancaster Fancy Fowl even tho they don't sex their golden laced wyandotte, I might just have to risk it!

    Thanks but I kinda have my heart set on these. I was only going to get 3 to start out but then I went to the farm show and saw those tiny frizzles and decided I needed 1 more! (isn't that what they call chicken math?? lol)
