Here in Pennsylvania, we get them from the Pharmer's Market and from the Amish community, but if you buy from the Amish, make sure that you buy from a specific farmer and that you know how to come back to him if you have problems. If you don't get them a "girlfriend (s)" they will mate with your chicken, the misture or Hybrid is something very exotic, but they are steril. Get more than one girl, when they set on their eggs usually two or three "seats", together and raise their babies together, its very nice to see three hens, walking around with 20-30 babies. Also I want to remind you they are not chicken, they will go to the forest, and get wild, just in a couple of weeks, and they fly like birds, to brake this habit, my grandmother just to put their eggs under hens, and let the chicken to raise them they will be more "civilized" Good Luck to you.
