    Hi! I’m in South Carolina (US). I have 4 seven week olds, my first crew. I got them from the “all pullet” bin at TSC, and only one is a pullet. So I’ll have one SL Cochin and am getting another same age lavender orp pullet to be her friend. I’m so sad about the boys but I can’t keep roos in my area. So excited to start raising my girls though! In process of building a garden coop in my backyard. Amazing info on this site!!!

    Welcome :welcome Glad you decided to join us! If you can, consider getting two (or three) buddies for her. Chickens are flock animals and do better in a group.... and if something happens to one of them you will not have a lonely chicken
