    Hi Im new here obviously and my wife and i want to get some chickens and ducks. We both grew up with and now that were married with two little girls we want them to have the same experiences. We want to start off small. 6 Buff Orphingtons and 6 Welsh Harlequins. Were online can I buy a small number of birds like this. Every place Ive seen there is a minimum order of 10-15 chickens. We would like 2 males and 2 females of each. Any help would be appreciated. Also I didnt know where to ask a question like that on here. Ill find my way around.

    Go to the "Social" forum. Click on 'Where am I? Where are you!' and locate your state thread. Perhaps someone local can help you. Also try the "Buy, Sell, Trade" forum. Good luck at locating the desired birds, and [​IMG].

    Welcome to The BYC!

    I would recommend looking at your local CL, area farms and here in your state forum area.

    Good luck and beware! It can be addicting!
