    Hello Everybody!
    I'm Sara, we reside in the Poconos of Pa, and this is my first year with Chickens. We just got our order from healthy Chicks and More. I have 5 Golden Comet Pullets, 5 Golden Lace Wyandotte's pullets & 1 golden lace cockeral.
    I am excited as this is my first year with Chickens.
    Any advise specially on these two breeds of birds please feel free to share it with me.

    Greetings from Kansas, Sara, and [​IMG]! Great to have you here - happy you entered the wonderful world of chickens! I have a GLW rooster myself - he is a great flock leader! You can learn more about and speak with owners of the breeds you mentioned by locating the particular breeds in the thread below. Good luck and have fun!!

    Welcome!
    I am new, too.

    I don't have any expertise to give, but I did just purchase two chicks, one being a Golden Comet.
    I hear (from Googling - which must make me an expert [​IMG]) that they are wonderful layers and have good personalities [​IMG]
