I know exactly what I want. Buff Orpingtons and Cochins. I know I want at least one rooster, I think a cochin. Should I go ahead and get already living chicks? Nowhere around me in my research have I found anyone that sells those 2 breeds. The supply/feed stores here sell leghorns, RIRs, plymouth rocks. I have talked to 2 or 3 people who live in my state, but.. 3 to 6 hour drive away. But someone I've met here has offered to give me some fertile eggs to get me started. However they won't be the exact breeds I want..and I may not get an equal amount of genders! Could any of you give me some advice or opinions?
