I had chickens growing up, and always wanted to have my own but I have not had the lifestyle to have any until now. I am SO EXCITED to have found a feed store that has chicken to sell. They have a few different breeds but I have picked Ameraucanas and Production Reds. I really want some good egg layers, but because I have a business at home I need chickens that will be friendly around frail and easily startled people, I have had mixed opinions but I feel I am making a good choice based on my own experiences and research I have done. Anyone have advice? Which breed of cockerel is best? Thanks! I will be transporting them in the back of a pick up truck. I am going to make a box for them but the drive will be approx. 3 hours. They will be about 14 and 17 weeks old. Any ideas to keep them safe and happy? Would a Barred Rock rooster get along without any Barred Rock hens?
