I ordered 5 Buff Orpington, 5 Red Star, 5 Turken. I will be splitting them with my neighbor. I will be keeping 7/8 and they will taking 7/8. I also said yes to the free rare exotic chick. I'm having second thoughts about the free chick. I'm worried it will be a rooster and mean and loud. I have kids and they will be involved and I don't want them to be afraid. I think I might cancel the free chick. Thanks for listening! Lol My dad and husband are going to start the chicken coop today! Chicks will be here the week of September 1. I can't wait, I can't believe how excited I am about chickens! I plan to take pictures through the whole thing. Any advice is welcome! Should I keep more of one breed that another? The neighbors don't care which ones they get they just want layers.
