Hi - New member here from the Western Suburbs of Chicago. I am in unincorporated Wheaton and am looking to start a backyard flock. I have read a lot about it and think we are ready to actually do this. I have small kids that are really going to learn a lot from it, and we eat a lot of eggs so are really looking forward to fresh from the backyard eggs to go with our garden we started a few years back. My enthusiasm has come to a road block though as I'm having a hard time finding the best place to buy our first batch of birds in or near our area. Any ideas from others? Looking to start with a small flock, maybe 4-5 chickens. Thanks!
