Hello, this is my first post. I'm glad to have found this site, I've been lurking for a while and am impressed by the vast amount of knowledge shared here. Our coop is built (almost) our fence is done (almost) and we are almost ready to buy some chickens. One of our neighbors has 2 year old hens for sale and we plan on getting 10 or so and will be buying chicks this spring. So, my question, since I know just about nothing about chickens, what do I look for in these hens? He has black stars, red stars, barred rocks, and RIRs as well as a couple of orpingtons. Thanks in advance for your advice!
