No chickens yet but plan to get 4 pullets next spring (because of my dog and hunter and huntress cats I worry for chicks). I'm not allowed to have chickens in my pretty rural neighborhood unless I have a full acre (which I'm just under). My neighbors are all for it so we'll see if I can get away with it. I have people willing to re-home if it comes down to it. Seeking quiet, friendly, and cold-tolerant above all else. NE Ohio winters can be brutal. Figured I'd join BYC now since I'm doing a ton of reading in preparation for the girls. LOVE all the great advice on pretty much any question people come up with! Any/all tips are appreciated!
