    I am looking for a few chicks from a local breeder. My son is going to be raising them as a project, and we are hoping to get a few eggs. We have done all of our research about coops and raising, etc. but are at a loss of where to get our chicks. The boy wants to go buy them at the local farm store, but I really don't want to get any roosters.

    Any suggestions as where to start will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    We are looking for Ameraucanas, RIR's and Orpingtons. My son is interested in Silkies, but we aren't looking for those right now.

    We are in Lafayette, IN.

    I will have some Standard Ameraucana chicks for sale. I am asking $5 each. Right now, I have a waiting list for the blues, but will have some blacks for sale.
