Ok, we spent an inordinate amount of time reading about and getting a coop in order. With a young child at home we're looking to get two hens, primarily as pets but also as layers (at least for a while). We could get started chicks 4-5 weeks old, newly hatched or young hens (point of lay). Given that all will be given endless attention, what might the best option be for upping our chances of getting two very-friendly girls? Thanks! PS Thanks for all those who replied to our introduction and for the suggestions on breeds and bantams vs standards.
