Hello, So I finally got my husband to agree to have chickens... I am SOO excited!! Now where to begin? We aren't getting our new family members until the end of April so I have a month to get a coop, food, feeders and all the information I need to raise healthy chickens. I have a 2 year old who is just as excited as I am. So I am looking for a the "friendliest" breed and also the best ones to produce eggs. I know chickens are not pets but I don't want ones that are aggressive since I have young kids. Is it better to look at farm to get chicks or got a store like TSC? I really am starting at 0 and need all the advice I can. Can you mix breeds or is better to keep the same ones?
