    You might want to chat with others in your state for more info on breeders or hatcheries in your area, and also do some reading in our learning center for tips and hints on raising and keeping your new flock...

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/697050/michigan-thread-all-are-welcome

    There are also lots of good hatcheries country wide that sell chicks....Murray McMurray, My Pet Chicken, Meyers, etc..

    Good luck in all your poultry adventures and enjoy BYC!

    I'm from Michigan too and just joined today. What part of the mitten are you from? When we started we picked up chicks at one of the local farm stores or mills (Family Farm and Home, TSC......) We have had good luck with all our birds purchased to date.
