    Welcome to BYC.

    I know there are a number of small hatcheries in the Phoenix area that advertise on Craigslist... maybe you could start there?

    Here's what you need to do:

    Also be sure to have everything spelled correctly; it looks more professional. Use a spell-checker or use a reliable book to get proper spellings of breed names. It may take longer to do, but people will take you more seriously. [​IMG]

    Quote:are they SQ

    -Rhode Island Reds - production & exhibition
    -Ameraucanas
    -Black Copper Marans -coming this summer
    -Bantams
    -Cochins

    I mean no offense; it's just a pet peeve of mine. But I think it will help as you are just getting started.
