    I am driving to Charlotte to get chicks and that is just too far. I just cant find anyone in my nearby areas that have any. I am still holding out hoping there is someone out there. I am in Orangeburg SC so my nearby areas are:
    Columbia
    Charleston
    Walterboro
    Augusta
    and Florence
    ....oh and all the areas in between!

    I want egg layers like RIR. I will take almost any breeds. Let me know prices if you do reply.

    Thanks,
    Elizabeth

    There are several members of BYC down where you are. In fact that is where I am from. [​IMG]

    Look through the Ga and SC threads and the BST forum. You will find lots of people with eggs and chicks.

    You didn't find anything from Gary in Salley? He had some extremely nice birds on his place when we were there last summer. I have 2 very nice flocks from him and am sure I saw several other breeds besides Araucanas.
    You should be able to find someone around your area. Have you tried the SC Market Bulletin? I see ads all the time and list mine on occasion.

    I think I replied to your posts a couple of months ago. What exactly do you want?

    Market Bulletin had only 3 close to me- 2 in lexington and one in Orangeburg. One never returned my calls which really made me mad, and the other two were older chickens, and I mean like 3 and 4 yr olds. I was disappointed with the market bulletin. Craigslist has been my best resource but there still isn't much to go off of. I know I really should just wait til spring but I know then it will be late in the year before I get any eggs.

    We live just outside Columbia...45 minutes or less from Orangeburg. We might have some in April or May. Is your need that long-term or more immediate?
