    These people are in Florida and are supposed to have them.

    There are 2 breeders in Missouri

    http://mda.mo.gov/animals/pdf/poultry_yearbook.pdf

    There are 2 breeders in North Carolina, 1 in Virginia and 1 in Kentucky that I know of.

    Also, Meyers, Cackle and Marti hatcheries have them.

    The hatcheries would be the easiest but the breeders would be better if you are going to be breeding them.
