I am new to this site, and new to chickens. Our coop and running area is ready to go, so now we are looking for chickens. I have done lots of research and know what I want. Just can't seem to find any local. Don't want babies since we are new to the scene. Never thought it would be this difficult to find some.

Welcome to BYC!

So glad you could join our community! The best place to start for started birds is your state thread. Maybe someone nearby you has the birds you are looking for...

You can also check our Buy Sell and Trade section and maybe someone there can help you...

You might also check your local craigslist too as many times people are selling birds there. There are hatcheries that sell started birds as well. I believe Murray McMurray sells started pullets. You could always share an order with someone you find in your state thread if they require a large bird order.

Good luck finding your birds! I hope you can find help here somewhere. :)

Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! TwoCrows gave you some great links to help you find birds. You might also check the bulletin boards of your feed or farm stores, or ask if they know of anyone who has or sells started pullets. Good luck in your search.
