Hello Everyone, I guess I'll share a little about myself. I'm Nayeli. I'm in Arkansas. My husband and I are buying our first house and I wanted a smaller hobby farm as I love animals and prefer organic humanely raised food. I also have planned a bunch of remodeling on our new house (it was built in the 70's) and I wanted a garden to produce as much of my own food as possible. Then I came across the urban chicken movement! I have alektorophobia- fear of chickens... its a long story but pretty much as a child a rooster attacked me... but I loved chicks and so I figure if I raise a chicken from the egg or chick stage I will get over my fear! In researching however I found that their are other egg laying alternatives to chickens. Call me crazy but I want to start out with 2 chickens, 2 ducks, and a pair of quail! From what I have read ducks and chickens can be kept together, and the quail will be kept seperately since they can't free range ever anyway. I have two dogs so the trick will be keeping everyone safe and happy! Any advice. Anyone who lives in arkansas?
