    I just moved to Carrollton, in Isle of Wight County. Will be building a new cooplet for my 2 silkie roos and 2 OEG hens.

    I'm looking for a nearby feed store (or other source) to buy 2 new barred rock chicks this spring. Any ideas? I can't buy enough to make an order from McMurray. Unless someone wants to split an order, that is. [​IMG]

    Hi nativeplanter, I just got two too many barred rock day old chicks (female) from McMurray. Let me know if you might be interested!

    Hi Mudhen,
    I'm definitely interested. Are you local?

    Also, were you able to imprint the chicks at all? I just love it when they think you're their momma!

    Not sure how the e-mail feature works on this board yet, but supposedly you can e-mail me if you want to give me a phone number so we can coordinate.

    I am in VA, Loudoun County.
    We are getting our first 30 chickens in May.
    I would love to know someone in this area I could pick their brain.

    We are getting:
    6 Partridge Cochin
    6 Buff Cochin
    6 Black Cochin
    6 White Cochin
    6 Araucanas/Americanas

    I like the Featered Footed and I also wanted color eggs.

    We are going to try to build a coop, this will be interesting.
    I showed my husband a picture of a cottage I liked and he is going to try to build it on the scale of a coop.
    He is not real handy.
