Hi- really new here. I am building a coop in my yard and I am very excited about getting chickens. I have many questions. I will start off with a few I haven't been able to find on the forum. I will have space for 4 chickens. Since I will ony have a few I am being particular on what I want- colored egg, hens only, friendly...-possibly 2 silkies for my kid. Can I be as specific to ask someone to sell me their hand raised birds? or should I raise 6 chicks in a breed that can produce colored eggs and part with the extra birds. Is it OK to be FREAKED out about opening a box of chicks? If there is damage in shipping I will feel horrible.
