Hello everyone. I'm totally new to this site and to chickens in general. We finally got around to finishing our chicken coop (we built and designed it ourselves) and now are looking for 2 hens to make it complete. We want to get a pair of Buffs, fairly young (they don't have to be baby chicks), but are having the hardest time locating any in the Los Angeles area. We realize, now, that it's not exactly chicken season, but I hate for the newly built coop to sit empty for the next few months. As first timers we want to stick with the Buffs, due to their great personalities. We heard Black Australorps were good too so we actually wouldn't mind one of each. If anyone out there can help with our search we'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you!!
