Hi my name is Kim I am new to chickens but have always loved farming and birds since as along as I can remember. I don't own any chickens yet, I like to do my research well before I commit to anything especially when dealing with living things! I do currently own a budgie, green cheek conure, quaker parrot and orange winged amazon parrot. I live in the suburbs of metro Detroit where they just made owning a small group of personal chickens legal with a max of 3. I am super excited about this because living in the suburbs I never thought I could experience even the smallest taste of farm life, and now I can! I plan on raising them from chicks (I learned a lot about that already on this website). A lot of people in my area are buying their chicks from tractor supply co. and wondered if experienced chicken owners would recommend this. I also have no idea what to do when it comes to vaccinations on chickens, I do not vaccinate my parrots they are indoor. Thanks!
