Hi! my name is Dana Whelan. I am currently in the process of moving in with my boyfriend. We're interested in getting chickens once we feel we have enough information and understanding on how to care for them. That's why I'm here! I want to make sure I don't jump into getting an animal until I know for certain I can care for them properly. If everyone wouldn't mind, I would love tips on good/reliable coop brands, tips on how to keep predators away, tips on caring for them, etc... We plan on getting 4 to 5 hens for eggs, but I plan on caring for them and treating them as any other house pet. We will be inheriting cats, indoor/outdoor. Will I have to take precautions to keep them away? (I know every cat is different but I'm asking kind of in general) Thank you so much for the welcomes and advice in advance!
