    Hi, I'm newish to raising chickens I have a flock already I live in central Florida I joined the site because i have found very little on the net in Florida for sell I'm looking for a few specific types of chickens. I am in search of Jersey Giants, Malays, Brahmas, Shamos, Ayam Cemanis and Barred Plymouth Rocks. I have no clue where to look and figured this is a good place to start.

    You may want to also check out the breed threads for the particular ones you have an interest in. They are usually the best place to find out info about them - temperament, hardiness, any special needs for them to flourish etc.
