So here's my dilemma: I live in San Francisco and am only allowed to have four chickens. Because of this fact, I have spent many hours researching what breeds I want to own. I found a local store that has three of the four chicks I would like to raise, but the fourth breed (Welsummer) is more difficult to find. I have found two breeders in the area that have Welsummers, but the hatch date of these breeders is two weeks after the other chicks I plan on getting. One of the breeders said this: Quote: And the other breeder said this: Quote: So, I guess I'd like to know if it's a bad idea to get a chick that is two weeks younger than the other three. Any advise is greatly appreciated.
