im am so new! studying as much as i can before i start building the house and purchase the chickens. i know im going to build a very small hen house (only for 2 hens-i was thinking about that rubbermaid house on the coop design link) i just dont know what type to buy. i would like egg producers that are relativly quiet and will be nice to my 3 and 1 year old. so far i've narrowed it down to marans, well summers, australorps, or plymouth rocks. is four month old a good age to buy?
