Where can I buy started chicks. I am looking for 6 RI Reds that already have feathers and don't need heat.
I checked a few sites, but most only offer a few select chicks.

Quote:if you're looking to buy pullets try looking under breeders here or go to the buy/sell section & ask there because people will posting their chickens there or if they've got what you want & see your post they'll answer you there. There might also be swaps close to you & so you want to check there too.

I couldn't wait so I called...no answer.
When I started building this coop it was still cold out.
I was just cleaning up and found my heavy winter gloves and my rabbit lined bomber hat. It made me realize how long I have been at it.
I still need to build the sliding door to the run,build a roost,put down the floor tiles and buy a feeder and a water'er along with food and shavings.
These birds are 7 weeks old, can they go outside?
