Well, there won't actually be any of that here, but I thought I would introduce myself. I'm out of Douglasville, GA and this will be my first time dealing with chickens on this end; I spent one summer in college processing and want to try this from the other angle. I've been reading this forum for weeks trying to gather as much knowledge as possible before embarking on this endeavor and I have found so much useful information here and wanted to say thanks to you all for your informative posts and threads. So far, I have decided to go with a modified version of the Wichita coop and it will be housing four to five hens and ZERO roosters. I'm an avid outdoors person and I've been journeying down the suburban homestead trail for a while and this seems like the next logical step in that process. I hope to obtain my chicks in the next couple of weeks and will begin construction on the coop very soon as well. I have already began clearing the piece of property I will build the coop on and I look forward to being able to contribute some knowledge and wisdom on the matter once I have learned my lessons. So far these are the chickens I hope to raise: 1 - Golden Laced Wyandotte 1 - Black Copper Marans 1 - Brown Leghorn 1 - Salmon Faverolle 1 - Ameraucana I may drop one and or double up on another, I haven't entirely decided yet, but five is my limit. At any rate, I have been getting really excited about this, with the exception of raising chicks in the house, and can't wait to start!
