I am getting four baby chicks at the end of March also. These I will raise in the brooder until they are ready to be put outside with the pullets. I'm not sure on the color of the eggs as it depends on the breed of hen. I just pray that I don't pick up a rooster. He will have to be soup before his first crow, as my neighborhood would never allow a rooster!
(Just a reminder - if anyone wants any baby chicks, I can get them for you!).
I have two coops and both need to be cleaned out and the fencing needs to be fixed and new chicken wire needs to be put up for the Red Stars. So, you know what I'll be doing for the next couple of weekends!
ETA: Just got my confirmation from Benedict's - pullets will be here late March....I'll be waiting by the phone for the call to come in!
