Starting my flock

    Hi am working on starting my flock. I am planning on getting around ten hens, buff Orpingtons, barred rock and Sussex or something else. I am staring to build a 6'x4' coop with a run and four nesting boxes. I was planning on getting my chicks from my pet chicken in Connecticut. I was wondering if this was a good place to get them and where in ct are they located. Also any general tips or suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Hi, sorry I can't give any input on hatcheries. But had to let you know that I think your choices of chickens are excellent. I love Sussex and hope to find some this year. Good luck and I'm sure someone will help you out. Did you look for your state thread on BYC?
