Hi I'm new here (obviously) and am researching about chickens as much as I possibly can. I want to have them as pets, but my dad has this whole 'pet proposal' thing. It's 25 questions such as 'what is the monthly cost?' and 'why do you want a chicken?' that I have to answer and present to him. I'm hoping to get four Minorca chickens, possibly 1 years old? IDK. I just want to have some cute, cuddly, egg-laying, used-to-heat chickens. Love this website, has definitely topped my "good chicken websites' list.
