Hi. My name is Crimm. I'm new to BYC as you can tell. I am 19 years old. I live with my parents in our semi-rural home in Georgia, close to Atlanta. As you have already seen, my family and I are expecting to get chickens soon. Even though my parents were the ones to originally come up with the idea, I took it upon myself to choose the breed, also since I'm the only one that actually did the research. This will be our first flock, so I wanted to choose a chicken breed that fit into what my parents want and/or needed. I decided on the Delawares because I saw that they have a calm, quiet temperament, lay a good amount of eggs, and a good size for a meat bird. I've never really handled nor raised chickens before so tips are gladly appreciated.
