    Hello everyone!
    Please help! :) Im a newbie, and in search of a couple specific breeds! Ive done some research and made my decision. :)
    Anyone in southern CA? I would really like to find the chics as local as possible. Suggestions are welcome! I am looking to start small with 4 birds. 2 Golden comet and 2 Barred rock.
    Thanks!

    Lots of folks in southern Cal. Put "Southern California thread," in the search box and that should connect you.

    Blacksmiths Corner in Bellflower usually always has barred rock chicks in stock this time of the year. We purchased our barred Rock hen from them this year and I couldn't be happier with her. She has the best temperament out of all the birds we own. Wes feed in El Monte also had barred rock chicks last time I was there. Good luck with your search and hope this helps
