We are planning to get chickens this spring and would really like to get them from a small, local person rather than the hatcheries, if possible. Preferably a permie or someone operating in permie fashion. Anyone in the area sell chicks? Or know of a reputable breeder who does? We are looking for birds for egg production only. We'd be willing to travel a few hours from the Indianapolis area, if need be, though obviously closer is better.
So far I've only found these folks...Hidden Creek Farm They sound awesome, but we haven't quite decided if the Buckeye chickens would work in our suburban yard. Sounds like they prefer more space.
