Hello... Just joined the site and was wondering if anyone has any input on the BEST baby chick ordering sites? I am brand new to "Chickening" as my son says, and would really appreciate any and all advice. I got into the whole chicken thing because I think they are cute, would be fun to keep, and we go through a LOT of eggs. My grandma Betty was OBSESSED with chickens! She had a bazillion porcelain chickens in her house and loved them!! About where I live: 1. We live in Northern Va. Some snow, hot summers. 2. We have a LARGE yard, with 6 foot fence surrounding our property. 3. In the process of buying and setting up a coop. 4. I am really interested in the following breeds... SILVER LEGHORNS WHITE ROCKS RHODE ISLAND REDS DOMINIQUES 5. We have four children, ages 17, 16, 10, and 8. 6. We live in the suburbs. So, please send me your advice and where can I get the best choice of chickens? Should I vaccinate prior to receiving them?
