I am currently living in eastern Georgia and am hoping to get onto 1.5+ acres in the next year. Do not currently have any birds as my 11x30 backyard will not fit them, trust me my garden takes up about 70% of the yard. I am thinking Orpingtons and Dominiques as our birds. I will take any advice that will be sent my way as i have very very very little experience with birds. Thanks and I look forward to the knowledge and fun.
