Ok, long story short, my fiance and i are building a 4x8 coop with a very large run attatched. We have 7 day old chick on order for may (4) and july (3). We have found 3 breeds of Brahma we would love to add to the coop and olive eggers as well. Problem is we have to order in groups of 6 of either 2 breeds of brahma (3/3) 6 of one breed BRAHMA or 6 of the OE. Our coop wont hold that many birds to get more then one option!! Given chicks are very hard to find of all the above it looks like we have to incubate eggs. Now trick question is, how many should we order to incubate? I have never had chickens, know almost nothing about shipping eggs or incubating them and am clueless on how this is gonna work. We dont want roos but we have come to accept its gonna happen. We dont want to order to many and over rowd anyone.
