We live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and my family and I are planning to keep some chickens in our back yard. We can have 3 hens and are in the process of building a suitable coop and enclosure for the hens in our large back yard. Should we get chicks, pullets or hatching eggs? We do have an incubator and could find good homes for the extra birds that we hatch (we can only keep 3 hens in our city). We have successfully used our incubator hatching duck eggs. If we get pullets we would not have to deal with any extra birds but would miss out on the fun of seeing them hatch and grow. Any guidance you can give us would be most appreciated!
