Alright so my "girls" won't be here until May 5th but I've been reading the brochure that the farm supply store gave me and it's saying that the won't guarantee the sex of the Plymouth Barred Rock's that I chose. Considering I only ordered four, I'm kind of worried about my chances of getting a rooster in the bunch. (What am I supposed to do with him? We can't keep him.) We chose that breed because we have three small kids and want to have the friendliest of the bunch. Should I choose another breed to help with the chances of getting "girls" or take my chances with the Barred Rocks? As well, it says that I should have the chicks under constant light for the first four days and then introduce them to the day/night routine? Is this right? And now we didn't plan on putting electricity in the coop but with winter in Canada we don't get much light, how much will their laying suffer during that time? I know, lots of questions.
