I would like to start by saying this seems to be the best place to learn how to raise your chickens.. my first experience raising chickens was not very good I ended up buying older chickens like three year old hens that I didn't know we're past their Prime. Now that I know little bit more about them I want to just say that im on a budget so im looking for the best bang for my buck so to speak. Please keep in mind i have room on lot but not acres to spare if you know what i mean?. I want to raise a small flock of dual-purpose chickens and eventually be able to have a rooster and hens make chicks. What breeds do you guys recommend I only want to raise about 6 chickens total. Thank you so much for your time and your advice and your efforts I appreciate it very much have a wonderful summer.
