    Why local? Mail order is almost always cheaper and quick. Most nurseries are out of production until February, but many are taking advance orders. Check out their on-line catalogs and compare. Plus, the chicks╩╗ health and live delivery are usually guaranteed.

    Anyway, aloha from sunny Hawaii !

    I'll hatch yah some silkies or BR's. That way I could use the bator and not have to keep the chicks.

    if you want grown standard chickens for quick eggs there is a store in berkley called sticks and stones and they have full grown delawares , Barred Rocks and RIR for sale. I think the girl was telling someone they were getting $8 for each hen. They also have bunnies and mini donkeys and ducks and pea fowl and pheasants I love the place
