I'm new to the site and to chickens! I'm looking for some pullets that are due to start laying in the next month or two because my husband says it will be cheaper than feeding chicks for 5 months. I've searched a variety of sources and it seems like I'm only going to get these from a local breeder.. except I can't find any local breeders! From everything I've researched, I'd like to find some easter eggers and also some good brown egg layer. Maybe barred rocks or delawares? Any suggestions? Also, I want my chickens to be docile and friendly. Will buying them already older lower the chance that they will be tame with my husband and me? Thanks!
