I was planning to get a dozen day-old chicks mid January. However, they'll only be laying a few months before fall/winter sets in again and they slow down or stop. I'd like to start getting eggs ASAP so would I be better off getting some chicks that're older? Do hatcheries even sell older chicks?I'll be getting 6 leghorns, 3 RIRs and 3 BRs. It would sure be nice to start getting eggs this next spring!
