Hello everyone! I was at a friends, and she is a HUGE chicken lover. I spent a few minutes with her chickens and decided, yup, its time to get chickens again! So, I joined your flock today! I have a recipe for a great coop to build. Last time we had chickens, it worked out great. We have the coop already, we are just going to need to fence it in. With the ground still being cold and difficult to dig through, it will take all of march to build the fence. I am wondering if I should get full size chickens, or if I should try to raise some chicks. I have never raised chicks before and am not sure when the best time to buy them would be. I want my chickens to be friendly, and I know that by raising them from chicks, they will have a better chance of being friendly. But, I have also tossed around the idea of buying "nice" breeds.... any thoughts?
