Hello backyard chicken friends! I am new to chickens and am starting up shop at our new home on 5 acres in the PNW with 12 chickens. 5 pullets, six laying hens, and Fred the rooster. They are a blast! I recently posted a question on the Washington thread but I think I posted it wrong. I'll type out my question again here, so please forgive me if I am repeating myself. I am looking for locally sourced meat breeds to raise as chicks. I'm in Woodinville, WA (so on the eastside) and I want to raise a few chickens to butcher for our food source. I am not sure if it is the right time of year to find local chicks. If it isn't the right time of year I would love to know if anyone local raises meat breeds that they sell for slaughter? Thank you so much for your help.
