Hi! My husband and I are thinking about getting two chickens as egg layers. I did help raise two chickens that turned out to be roosters that my sister rescued from a friend around Easter time a few years ago but never had to deal with breeds or adult chickens. First, we think we want to get the eglu to house the chickens. Does anyone have one and what do you think of it? Also, we are leaning towards getting baby chicks at the local feed store instead of getting the eglu with the two chickens so we can raise them from birth and pick the breed. The local feed store right now has pullets that are Cinnamon Queens and Barred Rocks. We want a breed that is a good egg layer and is not aggressive and very friendly. We live in Georgia so we don't have to worry so much about cold weather but more the hot summers. Does anyone know if one of the breeds above are better than the others for what we are looking for? Other question is, is it easy to determine the sex of baby Barred Rocks? I know Cinnamon Queens can be sexed by their color but wonder if the Barred Rocks are easy as well. Also, would it be okay to have a Cinnamon Queen and a Barred Rock together or would it be better to have two that are the same breed? Any info would be great because I would hate to get chickens that turn out to be a bad fit and need to find a new home for them. Thanks for reading my post and for any help!
