    My husband's friend has his chicken coop all built and ready for chickens. He's been asking my DH where to buy purebred chickens. Not sure what he wants but I told DH I'd try to help. Are there any farms in SC or southeastern NC where he can go look at the chickens and pick some out? I tried an internet search and just ended up frustrated. Thanks for any advice/help/contact information.

    Not sure how far you are from Cleveland Co, but we have a good auction here every Thursday night. I would check the county that you live in to see if they have livestock auctions.

    The NC Poultry group is having a sale @ Lexington , NC's Tractor Supply store parking lot--this coming weekend I think!!--(right of the Hwy)-at Hwy 8 exit...

    There is also a livestock sale every Wednesday morning in Lexington, NC..off old Hwy 64.

    Look on your local craigslist and newspapers too!--or call your local extension agent for local breeders!

    I'm not sure he even knows what he wants. I think his best bet is to visit one of the livestock auctions you all suggested. Thanks!
