    I have asked the contacts I know and came up empty. I had a heck of a time just getting my 50 Lohmann Chickens. Best of luck and will keep a look out.

    hey dave, you probably know this but on the national highway downtown DGT just one block south of the main market same side they sell chickens on the street, probably sunday has the best variety. lots of indviduals bring stuff and sometimes its not your typical philippine fowl fare. have seen some heavy birds there. then also go to the fruit section of the main market and in the first block going south on the ocean side they sell chicks and i think i saw some heavy birds there too once. never ever heard of a chicken tractor, something new every day!!

    I had a look down there today and there was nothing there that suited me, they were all either Natives or fighting breeds, but Thanks Anyway, maybe I have to try Don Bosco or Silliman Farms?

    well silliman farms is at the end of hibbard avenue as you go north throught the SU campus and on out to the airport. the farms lays alongside the airports south side. we buy fresh milk products there, eggs, freshly butchered chickens and sometimes pork. also some vegetables. i am sure they will know where to send you if silliman has any kinds of chickens for sale other than layers. i have no knowledge about bosco farms. SU farms has covid hours in the afternoon 2 to 5, not sure about morning but i think maybe 9 to 11 or so. was just there thursday. they are pretty casual about service and hours but the food products they sell have always been quite good. i will also try to remember to watch the two or three feeds stores near the main market that sell layers. i am sure i have seen meat/egg birds there before. i have always had chickens during my life even in town excepting the past few years and here in duma. i find them facinating. no matter what you feed them they make eggs out of it. biological alchemy!!

    Thank you once again for that info, my small Chicken Tractor is 95% finished and waiting on Birds, I would be pleased to get any type of Egg layer now maybe the exception to that would be white Birds I'm not so keen on them. Have attached a few Pics of the little tractor 6x4 feet, I think big enough for 6 Birds? it should not need much cleaning with the perforated plastic matting floor and if moved every day there should be little smell from them, I had it in an enclosed run to keep the native Chicks out.
