    I LIVE IN THE MIDDLE TENNESSEE AREA AND I AM LOOKING FOR A SAFE FRIENDLY PLACE TO PURCHASE OLDER PULLETS YOUNG HENS. PREFERABLY 5-9 MONTHS OLD. I have listed what I am looking for and why I am interested.
    one jersey giant, I like that they are the largest of all breeds
    one brahma, I like feathery feet, and their beauty
    one naked neck, I like their uniqueness
    and also looking for the most broody hen breed out their, just in case I want a good motherly hen who wants to take care of her eggs, and babies...

    CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS???

    You might try Craigslist. I have had some success here in California.
    Maybe the bump will catch someone in Tennessee who can help.

    I wish you weren't so far away. I don't have the breeds you are looking for at this time but I do have a Welsummer pullet, a black copper Marans pullet, standard Cochin and a bantam Cochin hen for sale as well as a black cuckoo Marans hen. That is about all I have left to sell right now that is young and laying.
    If you don't mind the drive I may have them for a while longer.

    I had buff Brahmas but people talked me out of all of them. And I love all 10 of my Jersey Giant hens so won't part with any more of those. I don't have Naked Necks but I have lots of chicks in Silkie, bantam Cochin/Silkie cross and some Frizzles and Sizzles in different colors.

    have you checked the breeders list here on the forum they are listed by state as well as breed. Also you might try to go into th where are you where am I section and ask someone from your state. Alot of times they list what they sell as well as where they are.

    The hen on the right is a good mom and broody all the time when she is not taking care of babies. She is sitting on eggs now that are will hatch very soon.
