    So, after looking forever for somewhere in my time range for driving I gave up. I would think that more people would have chickens in my area but i guess not. I looked here, on craigslist everywhere i could think of and finally gave up and was going to wait for spring. Then, I looked in our local paper and saw chickens for free. I couldnt wait to call so at 830am i called this sweet lady and she has Barr Rocks and Orps! She is downsizing for the winter and i am so excited!!! My kids cant contain themselves until tonight!
    Thanks to everyone for looking for me.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated since these are my first hens!

    I will post pics tomorrow morning!

    I live in Hoquiam WA. Its about 20 min from Ocean Shores. I heard that it is usually easy to find chickens around here. The best place to look is called www.thedailyworld.com I actually found a couple of different sellers on there. Thanks everyone. I will get some pics posted soon
