I’ve been wanting to get a fresh batch of chicks for spring! Problem is, I don’t know where... chick fever has me possessed! Can someone either sell me some chicks, or tell me where I can get some now? I don’t want to order so, please don’t recommend hatcheries.

I live in Rio Rancho NM and they currently have chicks at Corrales village mercantile. Most feed stores will have them in the next couple weeks as well.

Village Mercantile certainly does have chicks in stock but be vigilant in checking the quality and health, some people I know who bought some chicks from them a few days ago discovered a buff orpington chick with a deformed beak. Tractor Supply should be getting their chicks in next week. You can also check craigslist as I've seen private breeders start to put up their personal stock for sale (equal caution and good judgement should be used to assure quality and health). I know you said you weren't interested in hatcheries but there is a well known hatchery located in New Mexico called Privett Hatchery where you can order over the phone a greater variety of chicks than you can find in the feed stores (since it's in state shipping is really cheap and quick).

You might want to also ask in your states thread if anyone there near you has recently hatched out some chick's.
I live in Albuquerque NM and have a flock of hens with a Barnevlder/Americana mix rooster if @KiwiandPeachthePigeons doesn't mind mixed breeds or hatching eggs lol. Also going to be ordering some Cream Legbar chicks from Privett Hatchery and selling off a few extra pullets (since the minimum order is 25) in a month or two.
