    We have two very sad children and one very sad and guilty mom here today after hawks took two of our girls yesterday. They spend most of their time in a fenced (on top and underground) run, but I tend to let them loose when we're hanging out in the yard. They follow us all over the place. Then the phone rang, and we all went inside, forgetting to put them back in the coop and by the time I remembered two were killed. Those hawks are fierce!

    We would really like two or three more pullets - ideally rhode island reds like our other girls but we're not too picky - though we'd love friendly, good layers. Wiling to drive a good distance - CT southern MA, southeastern NY, LI, etc.

    Hope someone can help us,

    Amy

    I am in Durham, right down the street from me there are RIR and Barred Rock chicks for sale. The sign has been out for a while so Im sure they are "sex-able" my now.

    I have a pair of true blue Ameraucanas and a pair of splash Ameraucanas if you would like one. I am in NY about 10 minutes from Greenwich. They are about 5 months old.
