Now is the time to stop and think. Do a little research. Have a look around and see what type of chickens you would like. Ask many Questions. Do you want little chickens that you can raise
? Or would you like to buy young hens (pullets) just as they are about to start laying. Or older birds that are already laying regular.
What type of chickens? Do you want laying chooks or meat chickens? Would you like just little hens that lay small eggs, and only need a very small amount of space. Bantams would then be the answer. If you would like bigger hens, then there are so many to choose from.
