Hi- My husband and I have decided that we would like to jump head first and get some chickens. We moved out in the country and have just over 7 acres. My biggest question that I have right now is that I don't know if it would be better to purchase chicks and raise them with us or to purchase ready to lay pullets from a guy about 40 minutes away. My husband and I have never had chickens before... I am ready to learn and would like to hear your opinions- My husband is in the process of building a chicken tractor. We purchased our first materials this past Saturday. Ideally, I would like the chickens to be able to free range during the day and then close them in the coop at night. So I need the chickens to be friendly and willing to go into the coop each and every night so they are safe. Would older pullets be okay for this or best to start with chicks?
