    Hi Everyone! Me and my (farm raised) boyfriend of 4 years decided last winter that in the spring we would like to get a few female chicks to raise and keep as pets. Well, spring is here, and we're ready to get our new babies! Problem is, we can't find anywhere local! I am looking to stay within a 10 mile radius of the South HIlls. Any suggestions? Thanks everyone!

    Welcome to BYC. You can order as little as 3 chicks from Meyer Hatchery. Just google it.
