    I am starting my backyard flock and would prefer not to have chicks as a beginner. I am in Hillsborough, NC and am looking for gentle, good laying breeds. I am a bit nervous about starting with chicks..... thanks

    Not sure how far you want to drive....but Shook Poultry in Claremont has pullets that will be available in June. They also have a website. I have been eyeballing their add because I am afraid I have ended up with some roosters and will need to add some more girls, lol.

    thanks, that is 2 hours away, but would be worth the trip. I have saved the site to keep watch over what is available and when. I can't have roosters, so getting the older birds would be safer. Wonder if they have boxes to transport them home in? hmmm

    Maybe something like a pet taxi(for dogs and cats)? it would keep the mess out of your vehicle.

    There are quite a few members here that are in NC. I am in Morganton, almost 3 hours from you. If you were closer I have 23 seven week old pullets that are for sale for $5 each.
