Hope this is the right forum - and hope someone is still awake. We were rigged and gigged to raise day old chicks (1st time-never had chickens ). Although we were set to pick my babies tomorrow, were wondering if we should go with some older pullets instead. I wanted to go with the young chicks because Ive never had chickens before and thought we could grow together, but reading about the sickness and such vulnerability well, the pros of the older pullet outweighs the biddy babies. But what do I know? Thats why Im here. Advice? And if we do go with older pullets where do we get them? We live in the East Bay, San Francisco bay area. Ive been waiting for years to have chickens, guess I can wait a little longer to make it right.
