This is our first attempt at raising backyard chickens. We ordered 5 baby chicks that were hatched on Mon Dec 16. They arrived Wednesday Morning at 6 am. We were excited to open the package, only to find that only one of the 5 survived the trip. We are now raising a lone baby chick, and are trying to find at least one companion for her. Does anyone have, or know someone who has female chicks around the same age ( 3 days at the time of this writing 12-19-13) in New Jersey, or eastern Pennsylvania? I am in the Manahawkin N.J. area (close to Long Beach Island) We have some time off around Christmas and don't mind a day trip to go pick them up.
