    Greetings from Kansas, marissa9, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! ChirpyChicks gave you great advice. You should call your local CIty hall about the legality of keeping chickens. Good luck to you!

    Welcome to the great chicken community. It sounds like you are planning to get just one chicken. Chickens are social birds and really need a buddy. If you could, please consider getting at least 2. And you'll get double the amount of eggs for the same amount of work....[​IMG]

    [​IMG] LOLchick is absolutely right - chickens are flock animals and do not do well solo, unless you plain to keep the one hen as a housepet. Then again some breeds do not like being in the house.
