    I would love to get a few more EE hens to add to my motley crew of mixed breeds.
    I love their blue/green eggs.
    I live on south Vancouver Island so what's the chance of hooking up with somebody who has some locally for sale?
    Full grown or wee chicks are ok.

    Hi mamabigbird on Vancouver Island [​IMG]

    I live in the Vancouver area and am new to BYC and to raising chickens [​IMG]. I don't have any chickens yet as our coop is not yet completed, but shouldn't be too much longer. I am now looking for a place where I can get some baby chicks [​IMG] or young chickens [​IMG]. Do you know of anyone either in the Vancouver-Lower Mainland area - or even Vancouver Island that you could recommend?
    Thanks for any chicken info or tips you can send my way! [​IMG]

    Hiya Vancouverite ... I get chicks from Buckerfield's here on the Island.
    I imagine there should be one on the mainland because they are a big chain of stores.
    I'm going on Wed. morning to pick up 8 little day olds.
    They said they'll get some more on June 1st.
    I go to the one in Duncan but there is one in Nanaimo too.
    Look it up in the Yellow pages under Feed stores or perhaps Farm supplies.
    I know they stop getting new chicks in June.
    If you're not ready for them by then you could try Craig's List or Used Vancouver. com

    As for valuable info and advice about raising baby chicks, I learned everything on the BYC forum.
    Those people are amazing.
    Good luck with your chicken adventures, they are sooooo much fun.

    Have you tried putting this over in Want To Buy?

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewforum.php?id=56

    If you hit REPORT and ask the Modly Ones will move it there for you. [​IMG]

    Good luck in your hunt! I'd love love LOVE to have a rainbow basket but with our measly limit of four, and NO boys... well plain ol' sex links were the safest bet. Best of luck in your hunt... and be sure and post pics of your lovely eggs when you have some!!
