I've decided to order my chicks online from My Pet Chicken because the ones at our local feed store did not look good. They all looked kind of sickly and many had pasty butt. I do not want to start off with sick chickens. I also contacted the owner of the store to tell him the chicks looked unhealthy and he needed to go see them personally to see if something was wrong. So, here is my list of chicks: ~2 silkie bantams. One buff, one surprise. ~1 buff orpington ~1 delaware ~1 New Hamshire Red ~1 Barred Rock How does this sound? They will (or are suppose to be) all pullets. Once feathered and ready to go out, they will be in a "tractor" style coop. It is approximently 5' tall, 9' long, and 4' wide. (approximent measurements). Those measurements include the run. They will be "boarded" out where I board my horses, and will be allowed to hang out in a baby play pen while I'm there, about 2 hours per day, longer on the weekends. (They can't be free range because of the coyotes) Many thanks from a chicken newbie!
