"Oh my goodness! You are practically my neighbor! I live near 32nd St & Shea. I would love to come by your micro farm sometime & maybe we can figure out a plan. The 3-4 month olds may be the best option for us since we cannot have a rooster."

I am preparing to find my first backyard chicken flock. I would like to avoid the trauma of shipping my new babies to be, so I wondered if anyone had suggestions for reputable/local AZ breeders preferably in the Phx area. I do not know if organically raised chicks are even an option, but it is definitely my wish! I would appreciate any helpful information =)
