Started pullets

Does anyone have experience ordering started pullets- specifically from Murray McMurray?  Good? Bad? Ugly? Can you recommend another hatchery? I would like to order started birds, due to our busy schedules I don't know if I am ready for "babysitting" baby chickies, as cute as they are!When you order pullets will they have "pecking order" issues since they grew up in a different environment? Will they be as friendly as the would be if you raised from chicks? I'm brand new to chickens- so any…See More

"I'm looking to get chickens next year, 4 or 5 layers. Now, I'm trying to come up with a plan for shelter. I have looked at the garden coop and some tractor type coops. I really like the a-frame type tractor, but our yard is pretty sloped.…"

Hi, Mary Elizabeth. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us; we love NW Edible Life, too! First things first: I don’t know if you’ve come across it yet, but we have a series called HOMEGROWN 101s that are basically step-by-step how-tos on various topics. I’ve been wanting to put together a 101 on rendering lard. Any chance you’d be willing to tackle a guest post on that topic, since you’ve done it recently? Let me know! If you’re game, we can discuss the next steps. And now that I’ve twisted your arm before properly welcoming you, here on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
