    Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here and just wanted to say hi. We live on Long Island in New York, and have 6 hens, 1 rooster, 4 goats, and 2 dogs.

    Looking to expand the rainbow of egg colors in my flock, and curious where everyone else gets their special breed hens.

    G’Day from down under FarmerJ8909 [​IMG] Welcome to BYC!

    Being in Aus, I am not able to assist with breeders but just wanted to say Hi and that I hope you enjoy BYC.

    If you check out the Where Am I, Where Are You Forum or search for a community thread for Long Island you may be able to find some breeders in your area: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. We might be able to assist you, if we knew what special breeds you are interested in.

    Hello and welcome to our community. Once you have made 20 posts, you can participate on the buy/sell/trade forum. I'd imagine that now is a good time to buy adults birds.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    We are looking for black copper marans, Easter eggers, cream legbars, salmon faverolles, and olive eggers.
    Finding it hard to locate pullets in NY this time of year, and can't do the 15 chick minimum on the places willing to ship chicks.
