    I am looking for hens that are just now laying age or that are around one year of age. I would prefer to have Easter Eggers, Wyndotte's, Brahma's, Maran's, or Buff Orpington's in any combination. I need around 8-10 hens and one rooster of the above breeds. Doesn't matter which to me.

    I am having a REALLY hard time finding any hens at all around here (Memphis/N. MS area) so if you can help, it would be wonderful. I really don't want to start chicks. I would rather have hens. Thanks!

    I have been there once with a friend. I thought I had always heard that you had to be careful buying at trade shows because the chickens that you find are always the culls? Maybe I'm wrong, it's just what I heard.

    I know there is one man down there they call "Cowboy" that I know sells sickly animals.

    We may have to go down there if I cannot find someone locally soon.

    Thanks.

    i live in Central Ms and we have people down here that you have to watch. i head about one guy sold another guy a reg. mini Chihuahua Puppy that got 40 pounds and didn't looklike one after he got big. if you was down here i might could hook you up with some one that has some nice RIR's or Buff Orpington's if he still has some. oh well good luck. you will find some.
