    Is it really that hard to find a chicken? I've searched up and down and can' t find anyone that sells ANY type of chickens around here...I'm out of ideas...I'm just not able to travel far...

    I don't know what I have to do to find one little chicken but I swear that everyone's just hiding them from me in North East PA!!!!

    Is it too much trouble for you to hatch your own?

    Have you tried Craig's List or LSN?

    after I tryed hatching them 4 times with no chicks to show...I gave up on hatching...I now have 12 pheasent eggs in my incubator but they are waayyy past hatch time...

    I've already invested over $50 in eggs with nothing to show for it...

    I honestly don't know what to do...

    Are you close to the Amish ? I know they probably have chickens.
