    If anyone lives in or near central georgia where is a good place to get new chickens on a more commercial level than going to someones house off of craigslist

    There's folks on here from south central Georgia. In the Spring, your local feed store usually carries chicks. Right now, the chicks hatched in the Spring are young juveniles -- I think the hatcheries ship juvenile birds (Strombergs, McMurray).

    How "commercial" are you talking about? I would define commercial as enough to order from a hatchery, myself.
