    My local Tractor Supply had some in today. You could call them and ask what they have in stock. They will get more in every day or two for the rest of the month, but its different breeds everyday.

    Also, there is a hatchery in Wisconsin called Purely Poultry. I got some chicks from them last fall and I was very happy with them.

    This
    is who I used this year. Very nice people, very nice chicks. They are huge and at 3 weeks I haven't lost a single one. Also had the best prices I found. $65 for 50 chicks and that included shipping.
