New to chickens. Got some chicks from a friend and recently finished a coop. Have 6 chicks about 9 weeks, unfortunately I think I only have 2 hens in the bunch. So we are going to a local farm that has some chickens for sale and will buy a few 1 year olds. We have a mixed flock, the only 2 I can positively identify are the barred rocks. The grown birds we are going to pick up will be black australorps. We are a family of 6. Our kids are 8, 6, almost 4, and 3 months.
