    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! My first suggestion would be for you drop by the learning centre. It has lots of articles on raising chicks and all the help for when they become adult birds https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    If you don't want a roo I would also suggest you get already sexed chcks.
    Wishing you all the very best of luck with this new chicken adventure. Be sure to ask any questions you have, everyone here to help and very friendly :frow

    I would recommend buff orpingtons or you. They are quiet, calm, friendly, great layers and docile
