Hello all I live on Cape Cod and I am in the process of finding out whether or not I can have chickens and if the historical society will approve my coop design! This is going to be harder than I thought. In the mean time, I have a few questions. What do people do with their chickens if they go on vacation? Although we do not vacation regularly, it is a concern. Also, I plan on having no more than 6-8 chickens. I notice that the hatcheries sell in batches of 25. Do people get together when ordering chicks? Are there any small breeders in MA or neighboring states that any of you have purchased chickens from? Does anyone have experience with Faverolles? Thanks for listening.
