    Hello peeps. I'm about to start a little BYC project. I have my coop about built and in process of getting all the fencing and such. I'm looking at getting a few Rhode Island reds (4-6) to start with. Is there any sites that sells and ships that amount of pullets not chicks?? I am from central PA and would like to possible find a place close. Thanks so much for reading and look forward to the help.

    [​IMG] I don't think hatcheries sell anything but day old chicks. If you could find someone in your area maybe they would have older pullets.
