This is my first time and I only have room for 5-10 chickens. I wanted to get them at the local feed store, but am worried that I won't get the breed I want. Since people who work there are clueless, what is the best way for me to know what I'm getting? I have looked at ordering online to be sure that I can get what I want, but it looks like it is going to be so much more expensive. I'd rather save the money and get them locally. I am really wanting Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rock, Americaunas, and a Buff Leghorn or two. Are their pullets all good layers? How do I know what I'm getting?? I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.
