    Hello all! I joined a while back to do some research, now I'm just out looking for my flock! I'm really set on getting a silver laced polish, a white silkie, and... one other undecided breed (probably something standard sized and friendly.. maybe a faverolle..) for my backyard, just finding them has been tough! If anyone knows or has some sexed babies available (can't chance getting any boys), shoot me a PM! I'm in Ocala, FL and am willing to drive! I know my order is so small that shipping has been a little bit difficult!!

    Until then I've been working on making our shed into a coop with a nice run attached.

    Um... that's all I can think of!! :)

    Hello there and welcome to BYC!! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community!

    It isn't always easy finding the breeds you wish locally. You might stop by your state thread and do some chatting as to where others get their birds or eggs... https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/305793/florida-always-sunny-side-up

    Sometimes feed stores will special order chicks for you. My little feed store is owned by a local couple that are passionate about chickens and they will special order when they order their spring and summer chicks.

    Good luck on this new adventure and make yourself at home here. Welcome to our flock! :)
