    Welcome.
    You'd likely have better luck posting here
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/37/illinois
    or here
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    This thread is for introductions. There are 350,000 members on BYC from all over the world so it would be best to narrow down who you're talking to like others from IL.

    ETA
    Better yet, there are a bunch of chicken related meetups in the Chicago area.

    I think you have to be a member for a certain number of posts before you can use the buy sell trade section. Perhaps it is 50 or 100 posts.
    It will automatically give you that option when you reach the required number of posts.

    You need 20 posts to participate in the BYC Buy,sell,trade forum. You can quickly get that number just by greeting new members like we are doing to you. Their is also a category for "wanted to buy."

    Hope you are successful in finding the hens you want.
