    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think the best place for those questions is your state thread. Put "Tennessee state thread" in the search box. You can also ask what breeds do best in the locale etc. Hopefully you also find some BYC friends.

    I have not decided... I'm really green and just beginning my research. I like to get out of town from time to time so am still trying to determine if/how to handle the 'flock' while away.

    Murray McMurray has an excellent "chick selector" tool at https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chick_selector.html to help you determine which breeds are best for for. Just be sure and click on "show more characteristics." Even if you don't purchase your birds from Murray, the chick selector is still a valuable tool.
