Hello from Boonville, IN! We got 18 chickens from our local TSC not sure what type, all the tag said was assorted pullets. I have 2 young kids that love them and play with them all the time. The baby chicks seem to enjoy the play time. I am new at this so it is nice to have a site to go to so I can ask questions. I am sure I will use this to my advantage quite a bit.
