Hi Michigan thread. I'm new to the board. And to chickens.
We have three 2.5 week old chicks in a basement brooder. It's looking like our BO is going to be a rooster: wattles sprouting already! And we can't have a rooster (or... legally, hens). I'd like our flock to be 3-4 hens. Our original 3 were from Townline Hatchery, but I'd like to go smaller if we get more chicks. Any suggestions for places near Grand Rapids? Also, is anyone looking for a very young BO rooster-to-be?
I can't help you with your questions but I will say stay away from Olive if you want to start small.
(everything's broody Olive! I'm going to have like 60 birds here next month!)
Amy, um, 2 months ago I had NO birds. Just sayin.
