    If you wait until spring, the IRA country stores will order them for you. I was just badgering them about their policies today, and I think they order chicks for you and ship them to their stores. The guy I was talking to said that the prices change a lot but it'll be between $2-4. I'm thinking about trying it next spring, depending on how things turn out. And I'll definitely include delawares too!

    Try "My Pet Chicken" they'll ship you smaller numbers.... put you'll pay the shipping.

    If you get them at an IGA or IRA they'll tack on $$$ for them in your price.

    My brother has a bunch of chickens up in southern Utah valley but most of his are mutts.... crosses of OEG, EEs, and Polish.

    Go onto KSL.com on their classified section. In the first group of listing in the left column is a section of poultry and game birds. There are a number of people selling babies or even adult birds in one or two cases. There was even an Americana trio available from one seller. You may have to go back several pages, and the older listings might not be available any more, but you might hit the jack pot.

    I know when I was looking for a list of hatcheries in Utah the only things I found were game birds and turkeys!

    Wish I had something to sell you, but my Layers are all mutts at this point. Good luck!
