    Looking for a few gentle Standard size pullets or laying hens. New to chickens, started w/ 10 guineas this summer and would like to buy a few pullets to lay year round brown eggs and possibly sit on some guinea eggs next spring. Would love to find some Orpingtons or Doms but open to others! Thanks so much for looking

    Keep an eye on the Knoxville Craigslist farm and garden page. There are frequently chickens available there. Good luck in your search!

    I have a few black sex links that are about 2 1/2 yrs old that still lay, also a few RIR x buff orp that are 1 1/2 yrs old. Let me know if you might be interested in them.

    Other than that, if you can wait until later in the year when we head that way, I'll have several pure RIRs.

    Thanks for the response. I am hoping to find some 6mo. or younger. Where are you located, I would be interested in some young RIRs.
    I started watching Craig's list and had just missed out on some Buff Orpingtons, unfortunately.

    I am about 1 1/2 hrs in VA from Kingsport. If you wanted to meet me, I could get them to you in the next few weeks but don't really plan on coming that way until either one weekend in October or (hopefully) Nov. 8th.

    With my crazy work schedule it would be tough to go that far but if I haven't located any I would be interested when you come here.
    I went to the TN Valley fair last night hoping to find some but didn't see any for sale in the breeds I'd like. If there are any sales or auctions near here I would love to know!

    There will be a bird show in COcke County 11/8/8. Maybe if you haven't found any then you can connect with someone there that will have some.
    And if not, you can meet some of us other local BYC folks!

    How far away from Florence Alabama are you? I have a couple BO chicks and some BO/RIR chicks to get rid of. I have lots of others I want to get rid of. These chicks are about 5 weeks old.

    Thanks for the replies. I sent a PM to the Dandridge person. Would love to find some close by. Alabama is a long way but thanks.
    Will check out the Cocke County show, hopefully there will be Standard size also there.
