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

    So glad you could join our community! What breeds are you thinking about getting? You might want to stop by your state thread and chat with your chicken neighbors to see if any of them may have some birds for you...https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/63745/maryland-thread

    You can also try our Buy Sell and Trade section in hopes someone nearby you may have some in this section...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    Go to your feed store and many times they have public boards where people put up ads to sell off their flock as well.

    And some large hatcheries sell not only chicks but started pullets as well. Mt Healthy and Meyers Hatcheries are both in your area of the country.

    Good luck and I hope you can get a flock soon!!
