    Ok so I live in alabama and I've been looking for some Easter eggers and other breeds and the only place around here that I know to buy chickens is trade day,the swapper (a buy,sale,trade magazine),or craigslist and they don't have what I want. I can't find any hatchery near me and I don't want chicks I want started pullets. So where do I find chickens? And I live in Gadsden AL if anyone has EE or muscovy drakes for sale near me.

    Hi there! You may have better luck sourcing started birds after May - as those who do start day-olds/hatch their own start selling off extra birds. I would suggest stopping over here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/29002/alabama to start networking with other poultry enthusiasts in your area who may either have the birds you are looking for or know who to put you in touch with locally.
