Hi, my name is Falesha, I'm 23, and I am addicted to researching chickens. I live in central Pennsylvania and I have never owned chickens before. First of all I would like to say this is a wonderful and comprehensive site. I am in the process of buying my first house (should be moved in by the new year) and I am planning on getting chickens in the spring. I would like to get EE chicks. I was wondering how many I should get? I already have a coop. The actual building part is 10 x 8 and the fenced-in area is atleast as big. I was thinking of getting 6-12 chicks. Also, does anyone know where I could buy EE chicks locally? I have already done some research about online hatcheries, but i would like to support my local economy if at all possible. Well that is about it for now. I look forward to learning from everyone on here.
