As of last night I ordered 12 hens (pullets?) and from Ideal Poultry. I hope this was not a mistake. Might anyone here know of this company? They are going to arrive the end of April. I thougt by that time the weather would be much more cooperative!! Not to mention this gives me 3 months to get the coop & pen ready!! Also - I am getting the chickens specifically as egg layers. The breed I am suppose to be getting is Leghorn - California White. Here is a pic: They didn't give any description of temprament (friendly/ aggressive, or??) or size unfortunately - or how good the size of the eggs (sm. med. or lg?? hoping for "extra-large") I'm just hoping here that I guessed right for the breed. I do plan in the future to get another 12 and for good layers is this a good choice? or might there be another that is better? I would appreciate any input here. Just wish I had found this prior to the purchase so I could have started better informed!! Thanx!!
