    I am finally getting chickens! I have all my brooder supplies and will have it set up for a couple days before my peeps come home. My coop will be ready by the time they are old enough to go outside. In 10 days, I will drive 2 hours to get my peeps from a reputable farm supply. I am to call the "live animal supply" person tomorrow. I have a small coop.... 2 nest boxes...I will get 6 peeps with the thought that one may die and one may be a rooster. I will request cold hardy layers with a variety of egg colors. I am very nurturing and have had many animals in my life, but these will be my first chickens, i have been studying and getting a lot of reading material, but what should I ask the feed store person tomorrow?
