    Dash & I are located in NE Georgia and are looking to purchase 2 hens in each breed in the 18-30 week age range. We'd prefer to p/u if there is anyone out there in reasonable driving distance (100 miles in any direction from I-85 at the GA-SC state line). If not, I'm not totally against receiving live birds from reputable breeders if it is safe method of transportation. But, due to the fact that we live "in town" the idea of hatching our own is completely out of the question.

    hi Ginj and Dash (that sounds like 2 movie stars! [​IMG] )

    why is hatching out of the question? I live in town and plan to do some limited hatches.

    City ordinances... The original ordinance to allow a couple chickens or lambs for showing was done to be 4-H friendly. Well, I'm a little old for that at 41.

    Oh and did I mention that I work for the city government. They are somewhat ignoring my chickens at this time. I wouldn't want to make an issue of it.

    Hi, I am sorry I don't have any birds for you, but was wondering what an EE is? I can figure out BO is probably a Buff Orpington, but can't seem to figure out the EE. Thanks!

    EE = Easter Egger - Ameraucana or Araucana mixes that lay blue and green eggs.
