    Hi! We are looking at ordering from website or catalogs for chicks to start our backyard flock, but would prefer to do business locally and pick up chicks if at all possible. We are located in Southwestern LA but can pick up ranging from Southeast TX to Baton Rouge/Houma area (my husband travels weekly with his work)

    We are especially looking for rare breeds to start with, so we can choose our favorites from their personalities as we grow our flock. We are open to others not listed though, and would prefer to do business locally!

    Breeds we are especially interested in (but we are open to others and suggestions!)
    Jersey Giants (black)
    Light or Buff Brahmas
    Delawares
    Dominiques
    Americauna/EasterEggers
    White-faced Black Spanish
    Speckled Sussex

    Thanks!

    I'm from SE Arkansas. Keep watching the chick section of BST and you'll come up with some of them, I'm sure.

    Thank you, Jen! I can see that I'll probably be spending a lot of time here. [​IMG]

    We have some time to look, as our coop is just in the planning stages (although I do have a spot for the chicks until they can grow into it, we aren't in a huge rush)

    I live close to Lake Charles, but head towards Lafayette frequently, Opelousas is an easy drive. Do you have chicks for sale?
