    Are you looking for adult birds that can be shipped? I think I've seen that somewhere, but it was extremely expensive. I'd suggest buying the birds locally.

    Would it be better to get female pullets online?

    Sorry, i cannot really help you on that - I live in Kenya. Personally, if the breeds you would like are available locally, I'd always go that route.

    Here you go. This is what I saw before. It's just so expensive that you are better off buying birds locally. There are farms in my area that sell started pullets and I've also found people doing that on craigslist (just be careful and house the birds far away from your current flock until you know they are completely healthy).

    If you buy started birds or point of lay pullets, you won't be stuck with "accidental," roosters.
