My husband and I are new to the chicken raising thing. We placed an "order" with a local place, hoping to get 5 black stars and 5 red stars. Just heard from them that all of the black stars they hatched we're males. We went with sex links because we only want hens. So we have decided to get the red stars but are thinking about trying to find some black stars from another local source, if we can find one. My question is...do we have to get the chicks the same day in order to be able to put them in the brooder together? Or how much time do we have to be able to find some black stars? We are getting the red stars tomorrow morning.
