I have never had chickens before, but we finally bought our dream home on almost 5 acres and now I can have my chickens! I just placed my order with MyPetChicken.com. I am ordering: 2 Barred Rock 2 Wheaten Ameraucana 2 Buff Orpington 2 Black Copper Marans 2 Easter Eggers 4 Olive Eggers I tried to pick breeds that were more sociable and easier to handle. I also tried to pick breeds that would give me a very colorful egg basket. My ship date is June 2, so I have plenty of time to build or buy a coop and get everything ready. I also need to learn as much as possible about raising them before they come!
