Hi, everyone! I'm Deb and though my username is 'DebsChicks', I don't have any chickens....yet. I've been thinking a lot about it and scouring the internet for all info I can find. That's how I wound up here. I might be a newbie to chickens, but I'm an old hand with forums and know a good one when I see it, so here I am...LOL! I'm only interested in having chickens for personal use, so I'll only have a small flock (if it can be called that....maybe 'flockette'??) of 3 to 5 birds. Right now money is extremely tight, so researching is all I'm doing for now. I'm itching to get started, though, but I know I have to wait. In the mean time, I can plan my coop layout, where I want to put it, etc. I want to have it ready before I get any chickens. I'm glad I've found this board, I've already learned a lot and only read through one thread!
