Hello everyone! We've been battling our township for a few months now but success appears to be on the horizon. We expect the township to approve backyard hens starting in July! My question is this: Do you think I should start with chicks at that time, or jump straight to pullets. My concern with chicks is that they would reach egg-laying age approximately right at the start of winter. (I'm in NJ). Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
