Okay, so I'm new to all this chicken stuff and very excited that I have talked DH into getting some. (I've wanted them forever!) We live in Maine; so ordering through the mail right now seems like it's not such a good idea. Still cold. The local feed store won't be ordering until April and the chicks won't arrive until May. After seeing all the baby chick pics...I can't wait until May! I was ready to order them yesterday...but now I'm wondering if I can find some locally. I've searched a few places and can't find anything. I definitely want chicks, not older birds. But I would also like them laying before September; which is just about where getting them at the feed store leaves me. I'm also not thrilled with the mail order idea because I don't really want roosters and I don't want them to throw more in for warmth. (It was hard enough talking DH into a few! ) Any suggestions on finding local chicks?
