    Hello,

    My fiancé and I had chickens when we were kids and would like to raise a few again! I hear the limit is 4 in our neighborhood in Newark, CA. We are interested in raising chicks if anyone knows someone near Newark, CA with equipment and pending chicks to sell. Thanks, Julie

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread) and they could point you in the right direction for chicks. In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
