    Hello,

    I recently moved to the Gettysburg PA area and looking for some older ready to lay chickens within an hours drive (to pick up)

    I am open to a variety of breeds and like the friendlies rather than flighty varieties. I have lots of assorted breeds in the past, and due to my move have to start fresh with a new flock. I'm thinking of picking a fun breed and trying to keep my lines pure (ha ha- I do LOVE my old mixed chickens). I am an experienced chicken person and right now have only my 3 peacocks I moved with me from Ontario Canada to PA.

    I am new to posting and couldnt find anything listed in my "area" . Is there a place on the forum that you can search local listings ? I searched Gettysburg, but only a few posts came up and nothing "for sale". If any experienced users can point me in the right direction that would be great.


    Thanks so much-


    you can also email me directly at [email protected]

    Go to Craigslist Pennsylvania and check out the York area. There were some quality Orpingtons advertised occassionally.

    Have you found any chickens? I live in Gettysburg and would like to get 5-6 chickens as soon as it gets a bit warmer. I know nothing about rasing them for eggs only.
    Do you think I should get older ones? I would love any advice.
    What kind I should get?
    Coop?
    Do they go in coop on there own at night?
