    New gardener here. Have a little 40' sq. garden patch and just put a chicken pen in the corner for eggs and fertilizer. I didn't originally want to pen them but both my neighbors have large dogs that they let run loose. We are kind of in the country.
    Started with 2 golden comet roosters and 1 hen; and 1 orpington hen.
    We had to give away the most agressive rooster because they were fighting. I think that 4 was just too many for the pen they have.

    One of the hens started laying over the weekend but has stopped for a few days now.

    I joined this site for as much info on keepind chickens as I can get, as well as networking with other fowl keepers for tips and such.
    Hopefully in the future I can raise a larger flock.

    We intend on hatching eggs this spring and my wife, myself, and our three year old daughter are all very excited.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Are you planning on expanding into other breeds? Golden comets are hybred birds and do not breed true.
