    I can't seem to find laying salmon hens anywhere. I would prefer to get them as adults instead of as chicks because I got them as chicks almost a year ago and they all but one turned out to be roosters. I only have one hen and I would like to have more salmons because so far they are my favorite breed. The only trouble is that I can't find any for sale near me. I live in the Huntsville area of Alabama. If anyone within an hour or two of me has any available I'd be more than happy to buy a few. I also plan on breeding them eventually.

    G’Day from down under lil bird lady1 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, living in Aus I am not able to assist you with your chicken search. However, redsoxs has given you some good starting points.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    You could also check for a Salmon faverolle's thread to see if anyone is near you. The males are generally much darker & different colored than the females.
