Hi all, I'm brand new to chickens, although I admit to lurking around here for quite some time. I've learned so much! I've got the coop set up and (hopefully) varmint-proofed, have researched feeding and health concerns, and considered how to weather the winter. All that's left is to take the leap and bring home some birds. (I am not ready for hatching chicks. I have great respect for those of you who do!) I've had animals all my life, but I'm a little worried I won't know how to choose hens that are a good fit. Does anyone have any good advice? Looking to just have 2 or 3 layers, but they'd mostly be pets. Thanks all!
