    What a wonderful place this is.

    I started raising chickens as a 4H member when I was 9 and went on to larger & larger animals as time went on, much to my parents dismay.

    Presently raising Simmental, SimAngus & Smurf ( SimHereford ) grass fed, happy, beef cattle here in pristine Vermont.

    I do alot of animal rescue and am on several local and national Disaster Animal Response Teams ( DART ).
    I was one of the few responders rescuing Chickens & Ducks in the aftermatch of Hurricane Katrina in Gulfport, Biloxie & New Orleans.

    Am presently looking for:

    A few chicks, of each, in late April or May

    Of the following:

    Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
    Golden Laced Blue Wyandotte
    Lemon,Gold,Buff,Splash or Wheaten Morans

    I know all of the above are not popular breeds, so I thought I better start a more concentrated search, early.

    Please point me in the right direction.

    Would prefer to buy local, but realize I may even have to go to
    another nearby state to find them.

    Where in Vermont are you?

    Have you looked at bluelacedred.com? That would be one place to start. Also, I think there's a Blue Laced Red forum on yahoo groups (I was looking into getting some of these but never did).

    There are also two Marans groups on yahoo. Some of those colors I am unfamiliar with in Marans, though - Lemon?

    Welcome!

    I am in Vermont also, about an hour north of you.

    Beautiful pic on your website!

    I wish I could help you in your search for those breeds, sorry.
