Hi! I am new to chickens! My husband grew up with them and has offered to help me get started in raising layers I am so excited. I welcome any information on the best beginner friendly chickens and the best place to purchase them. I live in SW PA and I was thinking of starting with 6-8 chicks. Is that a good number? Do I need a Rooster? Can roosters be friendly? I look forward to exploring this site and learning!
