One Saturday morning in June of 2020 I set out to buy 6 baby chicks and came home 8 baby chicks. How did that happen you might ask. While I was at the store, I called a good friend who has had many years of experience with chickens. I asked her opinion on the two breeds available-Plymouth Barred Rock and Silver Laced Wyandotte. She gave the thumbs up on both and then convinced me to get 4 of each. "Just in case a few die or you get roosters mixed in". Sounded smart to me! So I headed home with 4 of each breed, a waterer, a feeder, and some feed. I was all set to go.
