Hi everyone, I just joined the forum becuase my wife and I decided to get chickens. At this time we do not have any. We are picking up a coop this Tuesday and will probably build our own run. I only want 5-7 chickens. We haven't picked a breed yet but are looking for non-flying quiet birds. Would like to get a silkie for the kids though. I have a lot of hobbies (photography, 3D printing, motorcycles, etc.). I live in Md and have a Bernese mountain dog, and I work in IT.
