    Hi there, We are going to raise our first meat birds this year, have had laying hens for 1.5 years. We want to try Turkens, Orpingtons and Barred Rocks. I have a Turken breeder who can provide me those eggs, but need to find some Orpington and Barred Rock breeders for those eggs. If you have some to sell/send, would you please contact me? I'm in WV. Thanks! Suzanne

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Putting your email (or address or telephone number) in a post here is not a good idea! We have a lot of traffic on this site and it may just end up in the wrong hands, like a spammer's. Rather ask people to PM (private message) you.

    For eggs I'd suggest you have a look at the breeders and hatcheries listed here:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16/chicken-breeders-hatcheries

    and the BST section here:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    We have a lot of breeders here, I'm sure someone will be able to help you find what you are looking for.

    Thanks very much! We have found our Barred Rock eggs from a member, thanks Fred! Just pay paled for the order tonight. Now we need to find Orpingtons (buff or lavender preferred) and light Brahmas and we will be set. Thanks again for the warm welcome and hope to find the rest of our eggs!
