    Hi I'm Andy from PA. Been researching alot on breeds and which are good for what climates and which are docile and good egg layers......I'm sure you all know how that is. I'm very excited about getting my first chickens. After a considerable amount of lists and checkmarks we have placed an order from cackle hatchery. I'm hoping we made a good choice on the hatchery and the breeds. We ordered 5 sr speckled sussex, 5 golden lace wyandotte pullets, & 5 silver laced pullets. Any input on my selections would be greatly appreciated, as well as advice. I'm loving this site and will surely spend lots of time here. Take care all and will be in touch often I'm sure!
