    Hi all! I am new here and live in Miami, FL (already posted in the Florida Intro thread). I come up often to our home in NC -Dobson/Elkin area, and am looking for some chicks to bring back to Miami with me. Anyone know where I can find any in Surry County?

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Maybe check out the NC thread as that will put you in touch with members living there. Also, you could check out the buy/sell/trade forum to see what may be on offer - you need to have made 20 posts before you can participate.

    Best wishes

    G’Day from down under kfiore [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, living in Aus, I am not able to help you with your search for some chicks but CTKen has given you some good starting points.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Hello, @kfiore ! Welcome to the BYC flock!
    I like to buy chicks from Wilco farm Supply, They have very nice healthy chicks to choose from, [​IMG].(here is their website: www.wilco.coop/locations/ ) they have lots of locations in the US, you can type in your zipcode in NC or FL to find a store near you. I would also check when they get new chick deliveries, to make sure you get the best chicks [​IMG] There are lots of good places on BackyardChickens that point out what you want to look for when picking out chicks. You don't want:

    No poop on their bottom,
    no backward toes
    no standing in the corner, non active chicks

    What you want:
    happy, active
    "peep peep peep" but not too much, you don't want to get a headache
    open eyes

    also check that the chicks have no nasal or eye discharge - no bald spots and are not scratching like crazy
