Hey everybody. After much research, I have just completed my chicken coop. I have zero experience but want to raise chickens fors eggs for a couple of reasons. Mainly, there is no egg that is better than a farm fresh, free range egg, and also I want my daughter to grow up with responsibility that teaches her where her food comes from. So i was hoping that someone on this forum could lead me in the right to direction to purchase a sweet breed (for my toddler daughter) that is a great layer. My coop is only 4'X4' and run is 16'X4', so I am planning on 4-6 hens. They will be free ranged on a half acre for a few hours a day. Any ideas on what to purchase and where to purchase? Also I am hoping to buy hens that are at least a few weeks old as I am not sure I am prepared to raise a day old chick.
