I would suggest now is the time for anyone interested in chickens for this year to go to Borden Mercantile to order their hens.
There are other sources out there. Buckerfields in Duncan does a sort of poultry swap meet in the spring. There are people here in town within the backyard chicken network that have hens available.
It is time to look for your hens if your plan is to have some these year.
My hens have laid close to 1500 eggs since I got them last year. A gross value to me of about $400. My total costs to date have been about $460. I should break even in early April.
