... Eventually. I plan on owning chickens when I move into my own house in a year or two. I really admire Naked Necks, my boyfriend had one in California before he moved here and she was a doll! What is your favorite chicken breed, and would it be good for a first time owner? I' m doing my research in advance so I don't risk making mistakes. Also, should we get chicks or adults first? We don't plan to incubate eggs or anything. He had 17 chickens in California with his parents, we plan on owning 4-5 here. Any non- brooding breeds? Thanks for any response.
