    I am new to fowl owning, and would absolutuly LOVE to own a small flock of Easter Egger hens. However, I have not been able to find them.. Just wondering where you all got your chicks weather they are EE's or not.. But esspicially EE's

    I got all four breeds of my chicks from Coastal Farm and Ranch, but after being a part of BYC, I wish I had gone through a local breeder. The birds are better quality and you're pretty much guaranteed what you're getting.

    I got my eggs to hatch from some homeschool friends and some of those eggs were from an EE hen, but I don't think they hatched because I don't think I have any EE's.??

    I got some of mine from TSC and the rest came from McMurrays. The McMurrays were really healthey when they arrived and I've only lost 1 in 3 weeks out of 29.

    I have ordered twice from MyPetChicken.com they ship smaller orders than most places if you are wanting fewer than 25 chicks [​IMG]

    You can see my first order in my BYC page, I haven't gotten around to posting pics of the mew ladies yet.

    and TSC is Tractor Supply Company [​IMG]
