    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    You might do a couple things...you can stop by our Buy Sell and Trade section to see if anyone nearby has any hens for you....https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    Check bulletin boards at any feed stores nearby you. Many times people post hens or flocks up for sale or for free.

    And some nationwide hatcheries sell started pullets. These you will know are healthy rather than preowned birds. Murray McMurray Hatchery is one I know sells pullets.

    Good luck finding some hens and we do welcome you to our flock!

    When you buy point of lay pullets, you won't be stuck with a bunch of roosters. That alone is worth the price. Hope you find the birds you are seeking. Welcome to the BYC flock
