    Hello. I'm new to chickens. A cooworker talked me in to getting them and I've spent a week reading this site. Now I have 6 pullets in a couple big boxes joined to make one big brooder, and wood comes on Monday to build a coop.

    The woman who helped me at Del's Farm Supply picked the breeds as I didn't really have much in mind: 2 RIR, 2 Amaricauna, 1 Bard Rock and 1 Buff Orp.
