    I know it is probably not the best time of year to get chickens but I am looking to get some chicks and start up with some layers.

    Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Do you already have your coop and run set up and ready to go?
    If you do, you can usually find people selling birds on CL or on FB poultry groups in your area.

    Good luck with the chicken raising. What breeds do you intend to get?

  6. Those farm fresh eggs are addicting, once you have them, store bought just dont cut it anymore.
    Glad you joined us!
    I agree with the craigs list idea. I see young chickens for sale every day in my area there.
    Good luck on your search!
    Welcome to the backyard!
