I am new to owning chickens. My husband and I rescued a banty rooster and a standard RIR hen from a local shelter. We would like to add two or three more laying hens to our small family. I would like them to be docile or even friendly because the hen is very friendly. Does anyone have an idea where I could acquire a few young laying hens in the tri-state area of New York? We really do not want to add 25 chicks from a hatchery, nor do we know how to raise chicks. From what we were told it is very time consuming and our kitty would probably freak if we had small birds in the house. (He is an indoor only kitty) Thank you for any help!
