    [​IMG] So glad you decided to join us.

    Personally, I would not have missed the fun of raising my small flock from 3 days old. But the risk is not getting all pullets. I got mine from an independent farm supply as sexed, and lucked up with all 6 being female. Getting pullets takes the guess work out of it and gets eggs sooner.

    Good luck with your decision, have fun.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I agree with Sunflour here as there is nothing more special than raising your own babies. They are so much easier to bond, warming up to you immediately with you where as started pullet can be afraid of you for sometime and some may never come around. So just keep this in mind.

    Enjoy this new adventure you are on and ask any questions you may have along the way. Welcome to our flock!
