Iíve seen some for sale on Preloved and the like, although at the moment I wouldnít be confident about buying them from someone I didnít know  :unsure:

At the least, ask if the seller where the adult birds are.  If they are aware of the current regulations they will be quick to reassure you they are housed in roofed runs or explain what they are doing about bio-security.  Anything less than that and I would walk away.

If you go for it, you would have to prepare for the worst and treat them accordingly, so maintain your hand hygiene after handling eggs.  Keep any resultant chicks well away from your existing birds and be super vigilant about hands, the shoes you wear and any equipment you use when moving between chicks and hens.
