    I have two five month old red laced Wyandottes and have a fairly large coop with a massive outdoor area. I'm looking to get between 2-4 more chickens to add to my flock. Does anyone know where I can get affordable chicks? I would like them young or handled a lot so that integrating will be easier. This is my first time having chickens and two does not seem like enough! Thanks!

    Welcome! You sound a lot like me! I started with 4 chickens and now I got 2 more....may be getting even more later! It's just so fun raising chicks and taking care of them.
    I had a hard time finding a place selling chicks, but I ended up finding a farm outside of town that was selling mixed breed chicks. Sometimes you can find ads in the newspaper for chick for sale.
    If you want purebred chicks then you'll probably have to order from a hatchery.
