So my chicken choices have been decided finally. I did not think it was every going to happen. I am going with a mixed flock of RIR, Barred rocks, Chantecler ( if I can find any),Delaware, Orpington,and Welsummer. Now I am not sure if I will have all of them but those are the breeds I want to stick with. My question is am I better to order from a hatchery and get them all at once and as youngins? or get them as older birds as I can find them available?
