    Hello there!

    I'm currently in the early planning stages of keeping chickens. So far we have:

    - determined it is legal to keep them where we are
    - decided what we'd like to keep them for

    We're still researching:
    - the correct coop for our needs and the health of our animals
    - which birds we'd like to keep
    - feeds
    - pest prevention
    - cleanliness methods

    I'm just starting to get into diseases as well. I have found this board to have a lot of great resources. Thank you everyone for sharing your experience and knowledge!
