    My family and I will be relocating from allentown pa to a rural area outside of winston-salem, nc. I don't have any chicks, supplies, nothing. I was wondering if there is anyone on this forum, that knows where I can get what I need. I want to raise chickens for eggs. we will be moving to nc on 3/20/08. Any help is greatly appreciated.
    thank you mike

    Are you wanting to start out with chicks or adults? If chicks, you can get chicks from Shook Poultry, It'll be about an hour west right off of I-40. I just got some today. That way you can get sexed chicks, without the worry of shipping. He does occasionally have pullets close to laying. Here's a link

    I just picked up my first chickens at Shook Farmson Feb 29th. 3 Ameracunas, 3 Buff Orpingtons. 2 Barred Rocks and 2 Wyandottes. Great delivery - just as advertised. You can Google him. He's located in Claremont off I-40.

    Southern States or Tractor Supply seem to be the most common supplier of chick goods although I would certainly check the local hardware stores too.

    Good luck with your chickens and welcome to TarHeel country - home of some really good basketball! And remember - Friends don't let their friends go to Duke! :)

    Did any one watch as UNC stomped Clemson today? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Clemson has always been the rival of the USC fighting Gamecocks so of course I don't like them when they play here either. The Tarheels beat Clemson. HAHAHAHAHAHA
