    I am starting my first flock in the charlotte, (yes it is allowed), I am looking for started pullets of various breeds. I would like to purchase between 6 and 12 hens laying large to jumbo brown and easter egg. Should be vaccinated. I am willing to pick-up, about Nov 1st.

    Any help or leads appreciated. I really don't want to wait til Spring to start. But it's looking like I might have to.

    Try craigslist. You should be able to find local in state people. Also try the NC thread in whare you at where I at. But you might call snooks not just go off their site. They might have more than listed or know someone.

    I found 2 very nice young Jersey Giant roos via Craigs List - there were 2 more as of 2 weeks ago if you are interested. No hens there. Lots of birds on Craigs List - just have to check things out before buying ie health of birds. It's nearly State Fair time - perhaps attending the poultry shows would connect you with breeders.

    did you find a breeder and how is the flock going? I'm trying to find a good breeder and I'm about an hour outside Charlotte heading towards the beach.
