    Hello all. My husband and I moved on five acres about six months ago and now we are ready to get some chickens. We live in California. I've been reading everything I can get my hands on but still don't know anything about chickens except I want some. I look forward to reading everyone's posts and learning from you all.

    How do you all feel about starting with pullets instead of baby chicks. Advantages? Disadvantages?
