Hello BYC Friends, I am a newbie to this forum as well as to backyard chickens. My partner and I have just finished our backyard chicken coop, an incredible exercise in collaboration that is very worth doing. We were going to get pullets from TruNorth farm in Contra Costa, but it appears they are no longer doing chickens. I have done some hunting on craigslist looking for pullets or chicks with not much luck. I also checked out mypetchicken.com, but they aren't shipping any of the varieties we're looking for until March....too long to wait for our new hen friends. I've heard good things about Toby's feed barn in Point Reyes. Anyone have some wisdom for a newcomer looking for pullets or chicks? We're pretty easy on varieties. Ideals would be Red Stars, Easter Eggers/Araucanas, Marans, Wyandottes or Buff Oprington. Looking for about 6 in a variety of brown, white and colorful. We live in Oakland but will travel about an hour or so if necessary. Any wisdom would be much appreciated. thanks!
