    You know, this is totally 100% newbie chicken mistake. I didn't want to overwhelm my coop, so I have plenty of room for the new ones I had, wanted to see how they did before adding more. I was planning on adding 2-3 more, and we will be short on our egg needs once they start laying...I have been meaning to order more as we do have the space and girls are doing well. Yesterday my sweetest hen was taken by a predator, so I decided to go on and order those extra birds now and...ah yes, how I didn't realize it was going to be very very seasonal thing-duh!!!! :/

    Where are you? CL is always worth a look. Not uncommon this time of year to find hens and pullets where people have lost interest in having chickens and the extra work they entail in the winter. You can also look at a few older (free) hens that won't lay great but they will give you a few eggs through the winter. Come spring, start some chicks and replace the older hens when they get to POL.

    Also check out the Where are you? section. Someone close has a few hens they would be willing to part with. Shipping POL pullets is not cheap. Expect to pay around $75 a bird. You can buy a lot of eggs with that money.
