I have been thinking about getting chickens for a long time and we're finally living somewhere that I'm allowed to have them. I was thinking that I'd wait until next spring but a friend of mine asked me today if I wanted some chickens that one of her friends currently has. She can no longer keep them for some reason. I'm waiting to find out a little bit more about them, but I'm seriously thinking about it. Three chickens; 2 different breeds, and they're approx. 3 years old. I need to do more research on the breeds and looking after them, which is why I signed up on this site. I'm looking forward to checking out all the interesting stuff. Hoping to get the chickens here very soon.
