Starting a flock in the Yakima area and looking for a couple broody hens

My partner and I are relocating to the Yakima area and are looking to get a flock going. We aren't looking for any ladies that are productive to your farm/garden. But if you have any gentle hens that still brood without producing much in the way of eggs we would love to adopt a couple that will raise our first generation of chicks. Also, we are very interested in finding a source of fertilized eggs of any independent varieties (like Rangers) we would love to speak with you too. I'm going to school for brewery science and can trade in beer, fermented veggies, preserves, tinctures, or provide fiat currency should it be the preferred method.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions for small breeders in the area we would be greatly appreciative!

I'd like to give this a bump. We are settled into our home and I'd like to get our birds as soon as possible.

I live about an hour and a half further east of you and my chickens are just starting to lay. I haven't seen any broody girls yet but would be more than willing to share any that start later if you would like. I have a mix right now, Barred Rock, Buff Orpingtons, silver-laced Wyandottes, black Australorps and some I just call 'mutts' as they are an odd mix of Brahmas, Americaunas and some other Wyandotte color. I will keep you posted!
 
Why should I lose weight? They make bigger overalls. And they sure don't make overalls for tiny ads:
