Raising chickens is fun and exciting & there are so many places to buy birds of all different kinds from. A good place many people start is the BYC Buy - Sell - Trade Forum section. So we would like to find out: Where Do You Get Your Chicks From?

I get hatching eggs shipped to me from random sellers on eBay mostly. It allows me to get the breeds I want at ( sometimes) reasonable prices and I have gotten pretty good at hatching shipped eggs 😜. Also have gotten hatching eggs from Deer Run Farm in Maryland, and chicks from a local Rural King and Meyer Hatchery in the past.
