Know very little about chickens...first flock 2 years ago was given to us , and on a whim we took them. Of course then we begin to fall in love with chickens ... Then to our horror ...a fox and/or coon wiped out our entire flock last July. So hubby built a new 8x8x7 barn style coop for our next flock that we plan to start this spring....After looking at what McMurrary had to offer I am confused....I want about 12-15 hens and about 2 roosters this time. So if I order from them I need to specify that I want hens, right?? I can do that ...But here is my next problem....Due to the cost...we might just have to go to our local MFA or Atwoods to see about their 'chick day' and what they have to offer. If we go that route...will they be able to tell the difference if I only ask for 2 roosters?? Or will I just get a mix....?? I guess I will call around tomorrrow and find out ...but sorta wanted to get some input from more seasoned chicken people about this .....I want to learn as much as we can before we get our new additions !!!! Any advice is welcome! I am getting excited about the prospect of getting our chicks !!! Cant Wait!!!!
