Hello! I have been doing a lot of research and I finally decided to start raising my own flock of chickens for a hobby as well as for eggs (and potentially meat in the future). I ordered 4 started (22 week old) pullets from murray mcmurray and they are due to arrive this week. (i felt started pullets may be safer as a first timer because i was nervous about raising chicks) I have my coop ready with all of my supplies, but i am still nervous being a first timer! So if anyone has any tips pointers or advice it would be greatly appreciated!! i live in new jersey and ordered 2 delawares, a rhode island red and a barred Plymouth rock. Thanks! and thanks for such an awesome and informative website!!
