Hi everyone! We are completely new at keeping chickens. We lived in town for 12 years....but this month will be a year at our new home on 4 acres outside of town. We love the freedom to be able to do whatever want. So we thought we wanted to get some chickens. We have been reading up on them for months. We looked at breeders online and did the while I want this kind and that but buying from them just want going to happen. We only technically wanted 6 but have 8. Bought the extras just in case some didn't make it. We ended up buying them from Tractor Supply. So we really have no clue on the actual types that they are. We bought them all as pullets. I am leaning towards Easter Eggers as what I see them being called here on the forum. They will be About 2 weeks old tomorrow. We bought them a coop but if they all make it looks like we may have to add on it or even buy another one! After we get the hang of the chickens we want to try our hand at goats!
