    Well, we are new to 4h, and my son's 4h teacher is more into the other aspects of it. I guess they aren't really into the livestock portion. I have been asking about when he is supposed to order the meat chickens to bring to which show. Anyways, the teacher told me on Friday the show is the first week of Feb. I have been online looking for day old chicks (at least it would be something) to no avail. Does anyone know if I could get started birds, or if anyone has chicks ready to ship right now?

    your local feed store should be able to help. They most likely know all the breeders in your area.

    If you want cornish X here on the Northshore, you're not going to have any luck with feed stores until February 1. How many do you need? Welp will ship them Wednesday if you order tomorrow, you'll have them Friday morning.

    Send me a PM if you only need a few and have to order 25, I might split some with ya, and am just North of Covington.
