I figured I would start this out right by saying I'm clueless on raising chickens! I have been trolling through the forum learning and reading everything that seems to be in my interest.
I'll give a brief description of what I'm looking to do. I live on about 1/3 of an acre, i'm fairly good with wood working so I look to build a Chicken Tractor. Got some "very good ideas here"! I do have neighbors and I approched them, they are fine with me having chickens so I'm good there. I was reading that I don't need a rooster, I just want egg layers. I'd like to have 4 to 6 no more and so far I'm leaning toward the Golden Comets from what I've read.
I do have two dogs, "corgis" and was wanting to know if this may be a problem, their not aggressive but do want to herd!
Anyway, thats where I'm at, and I'm looking for any suggestions. I'd like to get some birds in the early spring. I really don't know the best chicken for my wants and yard, so I'm all ears please.
