    Hi,
    I would like to buy 3 hens ready to lay but I've only found chicks locally on Craiglist. Does anyone in the New England area have hens for sale that started laying eggs recently? We are willing to travel a bit to get healthy hens, but would prefer to purchase them in Massachusetts if possible.

    Thank you!

    I'm looking in New Hampshire too. I'd also like quality birds. I've a lead on a place in Maine, just outside Portland, I have to call tomorrow. I also recall there was a farm in western Mass, down Rt 2 towards Gardner. If I can find it, I'll post it.

    What type of chicks do you have? I'm looking for Salmon Faverolles, Speckled Sussex, Blue Cochin and Cuckoo Marans.

    I have two Brahmas... I'm down in Ct, but I'm willing to drive as far as Ma. They're 18 wks, so within a month of POL.
