    They are close enough to ship quick. I've used them to Connecticut
    and love them.

    How many chicks do you want? There are local breeders in your area.

    I got my first chicks from someone just north of you in Mass. Her website is
    down so I don't know if she is still around.

    The Little Rhody poultry show is in May. Many people have chicks for sale
    there. I have, and usually have extra chicks and am only an hour from you.

    Post the chicks you are looking for in the Buy/Sell area. I'm sure you can find
    6 chicks. Another option would be to split an order with someone.
