Hello BYC! I'm just starting out with chickens and I'm very excited, but a very big newbie. I'm wondering if you all can give me some advice on how many chicks I should start with. I want both eggs and meat, and I also want to be able to raise new chicks so I was thinking of keeping one rooster around. Space isn't an issue and I live where I don't have any neighbors close by. Am I biting off more than I can chew? Also another point I'm hoping you can help with - Buff Orpington or Plymouth Rock??
