    Hi!
    We hatched a single chick from a nest that a broody quit last week. I don't think there are any others coming along & it is lonely. Does anyone have a day old that they would sell us that I could get asap? We aren't picky on breed!
    Thanks!

    Carol,
    If I wasn't leaving for the mountains in an hour I'd give you a chick. Hope you find something.

    Hi--I have a broody who is hatching right now--so far two are out--maybe more to come--They are barnyard mix--their mom is EE and Cochin and Dad is a White Phoenix. Let me know. I am close to either the Downingtown or KOP turnpike exits and I could meet you....send me a pm if interested...I will take some photos if you would like to see them...

    I have some week old guineas, they are smaller than a dayold chick but I think they could hold thier own.

    I just posted b4 I saw yours...I have 6 of my chickens' eggs in my hatcher now. the first one just hatched out 15 min ago and its a pure NN- all black baby. Mom and Dad both have bibs in the front of their necks. Not sure what the other 5 eggs are- they are all brown eggs and can be NN or EE babies as the 2 Roos are those. I'm near Easton Pa in NJ. Maybe you aren't too far away? I'd sell them or trade for ???

    If you can travel to Manheim on Saturday, there is a poultry auction. You definitly could find a young chick ther I would think.

    Thanks for the help and suggestions everyone! I have PM'd Chiknlady, since she is closest to me. If it doesn't work out tomorrow, I'll either contact another one or you or head out to Roots. I haven't been there in ages.
    The chick seems to be ok, but I hate leaving it alone!!
    Thanks so much!

    I know someone who just went out to roots. He got quite a few peeps for cheap. They have livestock auctions starting at 4, I think it is, every Tuesday. If you can't get one from someone go there

    Thanks! I was thinking of Green Dragon too. I swear I just heard a peep from another egg that I though was rotten.... Maybe we'll get lucky with another one??
    Thanks!
