    You could try this one... I think it's close to you... www.lionsgrip.com/farms.html

    Or
    you could order from mypetchicken.com

    Have you looked under farm and garden in your local craigslist? There might be some posted on there. Hope you can find some! Good luck!

    What I did was to post a WTB ad on Craigslist. I also perused ads for eating eggs for sale and contacted the sellers to ask if they had a rooster (i.e. would their eggs be fertile). After a couple of unsuccessful attempts, I found a lovely lady who was intrigued that I wanted the eggs for hatching and offered to collect them warm, store them big end up and call me when she had two dozen collected. She also asked me to call her and let her know how the incubation went. I just had two hatch this morning with a third pipped so I guess I'll be making that call soon.....
