I recently bought a house with coops and a pen big enough for about 6 birds. I've done all my research, checked the enclosure for deficiencies and I'm ready to start building my flock. I would like a mixed flock of sturdy layers with different colored eggs. I want to get them old enough to be laying, but maybe would like 1 or 2 younger chicks for the kids to raise. Any suggestions on breeds good for this area would be appreciated as well as suggestions on where to buy.
