I am new to the whole chicken thing. At first I wanted ducks, but my dad said no, and they are really expensive. I don't know a good place nearby in Northern Florida that sells chickens and stuff. I was wondering if I should get eggs or chicks. I heard that they're cheaper as chicks, but won't they be more attached to me as eggs? (I mean if I hatch them.) I was also wondering if I would want mixed breeds or all of the same breeds. (I don't want really loud chickens, in case one of them is a rooster, because I don't think that the neighbors would enjoy that. Which brings me to the question, can roosters shut up?) Okay, so thanks.
