In the Brooder
- Sep 10, 2013
Hello everyone I'm from a little town outside of pittsburgh and recently moved to a home with a lot more yard space! I'm looking to start a small "flock" I guess you could call it that?haha maybe 3-4 hens just to get some fresh eggs and for the enjoyment of it! I had chickens growing up but that was a long time ago! I have two kids and want a "friendly" breed but something that will still lay eggs and my main issue is that I'm looking for somewhere local to get some chicks but the feed stores and other places only seem to have them around easter and I really didn't want to ship them if I didn't have to. Any suggestions on breeds and/or a local place to get chicks or recommend a good hatchery to order a small amount of chicks from? Thanks so much very excited to start this new adventure!
