We are very new to this site. I found it by searching for Chickens in Your Backyard which was recommended as a good resource to start a flock. I'm a little nervous about this whole chicken endeavor. There is so much to consider. We are avid gardeners and want to be sure that the chickens don't eat our crops. How will the dog get along with the chickens. How about the bobcat that we've seen on our property on 2 occasions in the past 6 months?!
