Where do I buy chickens?

Baby chicks can be found in the springtime at feed stores and big box stores like Tractor Supply. Older birds – called started pullets can be purchased from breeders in your area. Craigslist and Facebook are good places to look for breeders in your area. You can also buy birds from online hatcheries. A Google search will bring up several. Hatchery websites are also a great place to research chicken breeds.
