If you find a local feed store you can ask them about when they will be getting their chicks in. I know there is a Wilco in Gig Harbor but that's a bit of a drive from you. We have had good luck with our meat birds from them(at the Kelso Wilco). That is where I will be getting our next batch of egg layers. I think it's usually around April to May when they get their chick in. That's if you just want Hatchery Quality birds. If you want show birds you could put an ad on CraigsList. Have you decided on a breed yet? We have 5 Speckled Sussex and 2 Welsummers. My next batch will be all Wellies. They lay nice big 2.3 -2.5 ounce eggs that are brown with brown spots. Sometimes the spots will look lavender until you get them wet then they are dark brown. They are a really pretty egg, a nice change to the brownish pink my SS lay.I am new to raising chickens. I am in Puyallup and am putting up my coop now. Doing lots of research but finding it hard to figure out where and when to get my chicks. Any leads on where to get chicks in or near Puyallup?
