Hi all, a newbie here. I've got my coop and am almost ready to begin my flock. Looking forward to those eggs! I've decided on pullets as I think chicks are too time intensive for my schedule and I don't want to risk getting a rooster for the neighbors' sakes. Factoring in vacation, the earliest I could get pullets is about mid-Sept., if they're even available then. Is this a bad time, better to wait until spring or some other time? When is the best time? I live in southern Calif. so weather is relatively mild year round, although some rain in the early part of the year (hopefully). I'll be getting 3-4, probably barred rock. Thanks in advance for any advice.
