Springfield, MO

Thread Starter 

We just joined this site today - March 8, 2013. We have been exploring the process for a few months and are preparing to have backyard chickens - by mid-to-late spring we hope. We want to use a chicken tractor, but have not built one yet. We plan to buy hens rather than chicks - and cannot have roosters here.

 

We'd love to connect with others in our area who are already raising chickens!

Hello! I am also in Springfield, MO and a chicken newbie as I just got my chicks last week.  However, it does run in my blood.  My grandfather ran a very large hatchery in Iowa for several decades.  My daughter and husband farm in SE Missouri and raise about 500 broiler chickens a year and have close to 100 layers.

 

So, in other words.... I know nothing, but have several experienced resources!

 

Have you got your chicks yet?  How many are you planning to have?
