I know it's late in the season to start a laying flock, but we thought we were getting one kind of chicks and we ended up with a bunch of meat birds instead. We're going to go ahead and raise them, but were really hoping to get a small flock of egg layers started this season so we'd have eggs this fall. We'd rather buy them locally than through the mail since they've got to brave the winters here and we figure local stock will be hardier (we're recent transplants from Virginia so our southern birds would have had a hard time this past season). Any leads on chicks or breeds would be welcome. I think we've missed all the local poultry swaps, but if you know of another one, please let me know! Thanks!

Thanks- Oliver's is saving chicks for me! I thought since they had a swap over the weekend that they'd be done for the season, but they've got some being delivered tomorrow.
