Hello there! I moved to MD from ND where I had goats, a garden, horses, etc., but never did get into chickens out there for some reason. Since I've moved to MD (10 years ago now) I have been mooning over my loss of rural country living. I was 8 miles from the nearest town (population 43!) and now I am 2 miles from a McDonald's, so it's been quite the culture shock for me. lol I still have horses (and a mule) but now I have to board them and drive 20 minutes to go see them. I miss having goats but there is no way my husband would let me get a goat and I'm not sure we can have them here anyway. So, I'd like to get some chickens. I know we can have hens, just no roosters. Anyway, I joined up here to gather as much information as I can about what I'd be getting myself into if I decide to get a few hens! Thanks for having me!
