    I am in Northern IL and trying to figure out how to find female Welsummer chicks within a decent driving distance...is this possible?

    It depends on whether you are looking for production (hatchery) birds or show/breeder birds and what you consider a decent driving distance. Many retailers carry Welsummers this time of year (am headed out myself today in the hopes that there are still some from this week's order at the store I prefer). You can also post in the "local" thread for your area (look here https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you) and do an "ISO" post to see if anyone in the same area happens to have some or know someone who does.

    Thank you for pointing me to those threads, I had been searching for how to find local people! Unfortunately there aren't many retailers around me selling chicks and mail order is hard unless I split with someone, so hopefully I can meet some more chicken people!
