    Some chickens really make no noise what so every. When they get in numbers the noises start. And when you have a rooster. The lil hens would do great for you and you could get almost any breed you want it all depends on the color of egg you want.

    Hi:

    Howdy from Chester County. (I grew up in your neck of the woods). I am about two months ahead of you in the chicken process, so I'm a newbie too...

    I bought a coop/run from ebay....it really was poorly made...It will last me a year (hopefully). I am beginning the process of building my own coop from pallets..(Sally Sunshine has a great tutorial listed in her signature...(She posts often)...

    When I bought my six chicks I went with x2BOs, x2 Gold laced Wyandottes (GLWs) and x2 Silver Gray Dorkings. My criteria was : Cold Hardy, Friendly, will do well in a pen. They should give 3-4 eggs per week...other breeds lay better.

    I believe the coop/run you intend to buy will hold 3-4 full sized birds and maybe 5-6 bantems...There are lots of folks on here that can help you with whatever you need to know a lot better than I. Good luck!

    Welcome!!! This is the perfect place to come learn! However I will warn you that they are serious about being enablers. I wanted 12 hens. I now have 15 chicks with more on the way!
