I have wanted Chickens for a very long time and have been lobying for them at my house since I was little. Now that I've gotten farther in my life journey, gotten into college, and matured the time has finally come to start my first flock! When I was younger my mother was a kindergarten teacher and every year we would hatch chicks from eggs and raise them to about 4 weeks old before returning them to the farm, so luckily I already know most of the basics when it comes to starting with chicks. There is an old tree fort on our property that we plan on converting into the chicken coop, it's a very good size and should be able to easily accommodate the around six hen flock we are aiming twoards. We plan on building our coop and getting everything set up before we start getting any chickens. As far as the chickens we want, we have decided to keep an entirely Heritage flock, with a strong emphasis with the breeds in critical or threatened status, cause honestly those breeds need lots of help and they are also some of my favorite breeds!I a precise any advice as I go on with this, and thanks for taking the time to read!
