    Go to a local farm supply. They generally sell them this season. [​IMG]

    Check out MyPetChicken.com, they ship you minimum of 3 chicks, but they have deadlines, so hurry...

    Hi Dom, I ordered pullets that I won't get til May. They have deadlines on the pullets, I'm not sure about chicks, tho, but the woman, Traci, is very nice and helpful, just e-mail her with your questions, and she'll reply ASAP. Hope that helps.

    Yes, I ordered 2 started pullets, cause I'm just starting out - and have small yard, and you can't have just 1 chicken! I'm already thinkin about checking out a local farm for another one... uh oh, I feel an addiction coming on!
