Hi folks, I’ve been reading and browsing this site for about two hours a day for the past two weeks. Since I’m picking up my chicks tomorrow I though I’d jump in a say hi. I have a few question as well. Generally speaking in terms of egg production is it better to keep one breed in a coop/run vs. mix/rainbow? Also my goal is to end up with 4 egg producing hens, how many chicks should I start out with? I was thinking 8 then give way any extra I end up with at 6-8 weeks.
