Hello everyone. This is my first time posting and I am hoping that I can get some great advice. I recently moved out to a small country house and want to get some (about 6) chickens in the spring (egg layers for now). I was wondering if anyone had any opinions about breeds for a first timer. I really don't want to spend a ton of money on a pure bred, at least until I feel comfortable. Are the chicks that you buy at the Rural King/Big R OK for eggs or are they primarily meat birds? Thanks in advance!
