    Hi all.. First post. Didn't know where else to post this...
    Anyway, I had a plan with someone local to buy 4 of her hens as we are just starting out in the chicken game. It fell through because she ended up selling to someone else('twas strange but whatever). So we're making a coop and the kids are excited... I've messaged a couple people on Craigslist and through some Facebook groups who advertised that they were selling hens.

    Any other places or recommendations of where I could look into to buy some hens?

    Thanks everyone!

    Im not sure where you live, but try searching for your area in the search bar - assuming there are some BYC folks near you, i am sure that they will be able to recommend reputable breeders. I would advise against buying at auction however.

    Good luck

    Don't buy from swap meets either - a great place for sellers to unload sick birds- because she will never seen them again.
