Hi everyone I am brand new to the world of chickens. I have been talking about it for years but I think this is the year to do it. I am looking to start a small flock of 6-8 chickens. The breeds I have been thinking of is Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington and maybe some Easter Eggers and of course I need a few Silkies.
My husband says no chickens but I said it is for the well being of our kids as the chickens will love to feed on the abundance of ticks I have on our property. Not sure on what I am going to do about a coop so any suggestions would be great.
Hoping to post pictures soon of our new babies.
