    I am from north central Mass. I am new to this chicken thing. I have always wanted to get some. I am looking for some Roade Island Reds. Only about six for now. Is there a time of year to buy them or are they always available. Thanks.

    I think a lot of hatcheries only operate spring through early fall. Now would be a good time to order chicks. A lot of hatcheries have a large minimum order number, but try looking at Ideal Poultry - they have a minimum dollar amount. Also look at My Pet Chicken, they have a low minimum bird number.
