We are finally moving into our dream home and what kind of home would it be without some good ole homegrown eggs. So now what? We move the first of the year. Can I just get really cute little fluffy, peepy balls of fun and put em in a box or what? How long until they have to have a real live chicken coop in the yard (ie, should I build the coop before getting the babies?) What time of year does one get chicks? How long does it take until they lay? What should I figure for a start up cost and how much should I budget for them monthly? What is the best way to use this forum without asking a ton of newb questions that have been answered succinctly time and time again?
