    Good morning everyone! Thanks for the add.

    I am soon to be a brand new chicken mum. My fiancée and I live in an urban area in Greater Victoria on Vancouver island, BC, Canada.

    We are going to be setting up our back yard with a coop and large pen this spring. We want our hens to have access to the entire backyard when we are home as well.

    I am currently researching what are the best styles of coops to have happy hens for our area. We are looking at raising up to 5 hens, as that is how many chickens the bylaw in my area allow.

    As well, I am researching what are friendly, dual purpose breeds, that thrive in temperate areas.

    Our chickens will be family pets that we eat the eggs from, and as I am Ukrainian, their eggs will also become pysanky at Easter time:)

    I hope to learn a lot here and share my experiences being a backyard chicken mum!

    Cheers!
