    Hi, my name's Effie and I live in North Greece. I don't have any chickens as yet but want to buy some. Our block of land is 1.450 square metres and includes our house, an orchard, rose garden, vegetable garden and a small vineyard. I have absolutely no experience of raising chickens but the thought of fresh eggs is attractive. I am also aware that chicken manure is very good for the soil. One of my interests is gardening and I am a nature lover. I am unsure of my ability to raise chickens but I am going to try. I am looking forward to reading the comments and advice on this forum.

    bye

    You will love chickens! For many different reasons. :) Sounds like you have plenty of room for them too. Good luck on reading, and finding info. Ask any questions. The Learning Center can help guide you to what you may want to read, or ask.

    Hello Effie, nice to meet you. Glad you decided to join Backyard chickens. Are you interested in layers, or meat birds?

    Hi, Drumstick Diva. I don't know that much about chickens but I had the impression that when they are young they lay eggs and then when they get a little older you can slaughter them for their meat. A while ago a friend gave us a couple - plucked and ready for the pot - and they were absolutely delicious. No comparison with store bought chickens. Any information would be welcome.

    Hi, the Town of Greece my does NOT allow chickens to be kept unless they consider your property to be a "farm". You would have to apply for a permit from the Town If you lived in the city, they do allow chickens with a permit! go figure.
