    Get in touch with www.meyerhatchery.com and I believe they have what they call "Juvenile" chickens (partly raised for you). Just a thought if you can't find any anywhere else.

    I stopped in on a family that sell chickens butchered and she keeps them in a tractor cage? it looked small for all the birds some of their feathers were gone and they did not have the freedom to run is this normal for meat chickens? My Layers have a much better life!

    totally normal. they are only around for 6-10 weeks. they don't all develop tons of feathers like layers; their body energy goes into making muscle not feathers or eggs.
