    Hi :)
    I live in the Huntington area.
    This is actually my first post, as I just joined this board an hour ago.
    I am very new raising chickens. I am actually an adoptive mom to three, so In came here to learn.
    You might want to check out Talmage farm in Riverhead.
    Good luck!
    Debbie

    There is an Agway in Riverhead It is very nice I get my chick stuff there I take the drive from East Islip

    It is several miles down the road from the outlets on the opposite side of the street on Osborn Ave. Also good for gardening supplies this time of year. They also have "chick days" . They have a good selection to choose from.

    Thats awsome, where did you get yours. Did get your egg by mail or what. I would love to see pics. I decided that that is the breed I want. I hear they are gentle. Good layers and obviously beautiful
