Hi Everyone, I have been lurking on this thread for some time now, soaking in all the invaluable info and tring to catch up, but just can't. I also started reading the old timers thread. Hands down - one of the best threads I have ever read on any internet site! Loving it! Again - just cant catch up. So informative but also just so humourous at times. I am hoping to start keeping some chickens of my own for eggs and then on to meat. I have 2 cats for pets so not looking to keep them at pets. I have an issue that I would like to clarify before I go any further and ask anymore questions. I plan to keep the chickens in my back garden which is very small - it is about 300 sq ft. Is this too small for 3 chickens? I plan to have a coop and run but they would have the free run of the garden.
