    I had ordered two from the feed store for my kids, these are the ones that are all black with a white top not, and one died when we got that really cold night, and I can't seem to find any at the hatcheries there all sold out. I was wanting to know if any of you chicken lovers had any chicks I could buy? I live in Pea Ridge AR right next door to Rogers AR. Thanks

    Oh, I am sorry you lost one of your birds. You might stop by your state thread and chat with your chicken neighbors. Maybe someone nearby you has some of these birds or know where you can get one or more....https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/37675/arkansas-folks-speak-up

    You can also try our Buy Sell and Trade section too. Look around here for some possible leads....https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    Maybe even the Polish thread will find you some leads as well...https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/585953/i-have-to-talk-polish

    White crested blacks are beautiful birds. If you buy straight run you will most certainly have some roosters to deal with.

    Thanks to everyone. Its kind of funny really had a hen sitting on eggs when these chicks arrive from the feed store. Four days later my hen hatched four little chicks I've always read and research that you could introduce chicks to a mama hen at night as long as they were all around the same age so she took the babies that really helped me out no more lights or cleaning out bedding I bought the top knots for my kids because their friend had one running around their farm, and they fell in love with it so I thought it would be interesting to have them never had them before we ended up with a couple top notch the golden ones too but we lost one of our black ones and I wanted to replace it just to make sure that we get a hen and not all roosters. Thanks again i'll chech out the links.
