Hello everyone, I am in the process of building a small coop. I have never had chickens before & we are thinking of getting 5 or 6 just for eggs. The coop I am building is 4' by 6' by 5' tall and sits on 24" legs. We are also going to have a 7' by 15' covered run. Any recommendations on the breed(s) that are best for newbies. We also want them to be pets & let them free range around the yard. I will be reading all your posts with interest & look forward to learning from you all.
