Hi, my name is Nicole. I have been researching chickens for a year or so. My family tells me I am obsessed! I have raised chicks in the past but I currently do not have any chickens. I am planning to start a mini little chicken farm in the spring. I would like to have 6-12 chickens eventually - layers & meat chickens. Suggestions of which breeds to start with that are not only pretty but good layers as well. My daughter and I are debating starting with eggs or pullets. I am intending to build a semi-permanent with a moveable run to move around our pasture.
