Hi all! After a couple of years of procrastination i'm finally going to start keeping some chickens this year. I live on Long Island, NY and my town only allows me to have 6 female chickens. I've decided to start small and get 3 and am thinking of getting an Easter egger (colored eggs thought my 4 year old son would love), Columbian Wyandotte (wife and son want a white one and thought it looked cute) and a Speckled Sussex (friendly for my son). hopefully they'll all get along, now just have a couple of months to figure out a coop. look forward to getting lots of advice from you all.
