    Ebay wont have chicks, but they'll have hatching eggs! I get mine on ebay and have never had a problem!
    But as Orpie said, Craigslist would be your best bet!

    I'll post some pics tomorrow. They are sooo cute. Best looking birds in the world! One little girl is sluggish and tentative. They hold their wings down so low! The rooster keeps them together, he is so bold! They ate lots of bugs, but I have 9 RIR roosters I got for free that are a week younger and are absolutely VIGOROUS feeders and personality plus. They fear nothing, jump in with both feet, and are quite the personalities. They grow quickly and are so fun. I want to LOVE my lavenders, but they are still so tiny....and timid

    Time will tell!

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    I don't think I'd scratch the attempt at hatching these eggs. Our mixed flocks eggs saw a temp spike a couple of days ago and so far they seem to be developing well. I think it would depend on duration of spike and how far along the embryos were.
