Wanted: Egg Laying Chickens and Best Breeds

This spring, I want to raise egg laying chickens, which I've never done before. Were new to the Williamsburg area. Does anyone know where I can get chicks or chickens/roosters locally? I'd rather get them from a nearby farmer vs. mail ordering them.

Also, what breeds work well with our weather and that are good layers and not too aggressive? Like I mentioned, I'm trying chickens for the first time and read a bunch of books but don't really know what I'm doing so any guidance would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

go up to london early on a tuesday morning at the stock sale. they got about every flavor of chickens a man could want. you can pick up a goat cheap like too, milk that and make some cheese off from it. it's real good with moonshine.

Thanks for the tip. I found a few livestock places in London and started calling them to see which ones sell chickens. I think Patton Livestock Market at 1253 Main Street might be the one you're suggesting?
