    I'm going to be placing an order for chicks this weekend and I'm putting together my wish list. I have been extremely happy with the the way that my flock gets along. Only picking issues I have had were when they were chicks and this resolved with the help of rooster booster.
    I'm a little scared of picking issues, my neighbors have always had bald chickens from picking.
    I've heard that some breeds are more likely to pick than others. Does anyone know if this is true? Are there any chickens I should avoid.
    I'm looking for good brown egg layers.
