My hubby and I just bought 3 acres of woods in Southern WI. We have a lot of work ahead of us to clear areas for next year of things we want. I have been very excited to start with a small, and I mean SMALL number of chickens. I am jumping into this head long as I know very little about chickens, but have learned so much today just by the site www.backyardchickens.com I think I would like to start with only a few layers and some fryers or broilers. I'm not even sure if I can put them in the same coop, but I am assuming so. I am hoping that I wont need a rooster. I was chased by one when I was younger and that freaked me right out! anyway....so I am trying to learn as much as i can by next spring, to start our own little organic chicken set up. I hope it works out the way we want it too.
