So, I never bought the adult birds. I stayed with the ones I bought as chicks from Tractor Supply and they are now doing well in a well-built coop. Today more chicks, male and female, arrived from Murray McMurray Hatchery. I am building a coop for each pair of mates. My plans are to provide a good coop to each pair and they provide me with eggs and some future chicks. Not looking for "big money" gains from all of this. Mostly, just the enjoyment of a good hobby and later some sales of chicks and eggs and some give aways. I may buy an incubator later this year if all goes well as I have planned.
