    Looking for at least 4 more laying hens to supplement a growing foster family's egg production. They already have some layers, but with more kids they could use more eggs. Please let me know if you have laying hens available for $10 or less each. Thanks

    Yorkshire coop has given you some good places to start looking. You might be able to find some locally to at swap meets. Wherever you get them, be sure to isolate for about 30 days to be sure you aren't bringing in unwanted pests or illnesses. And integrate them carefully, chickens don't take kindly to new birds being dropped suddenly into their flock.

    Good luck finding the birds you want!
