My name is Denise--I'm just starting to do some research before I dive in! I live in Scottsboro, AL and I'm not sure if there are any laws against having chickens in town, so I am waiting to hear back about that before I do anything. I'm only wanting a few chickens for eggs and hopefully some pest control (ticks, mosquitos, etc). I'm still trying to decide which breed will be best, where we'll build a coop, etc. I'm looking forward to getting some good info on here!
