First post on here, so I thought I'd pop in and greet everyone. Having grown up in the country (lot's of space, dirt roads, well water etc.), I have since lived in the the heart of some of Europe's largest cities. My family and I finally got a opportunity to move out closer to the countryside, in Germany. We'll have a pretty big yard, a little over 5,000 sq feet. Never had laying hens before, but with this move I don't think I can pass up the opportunity. I thought I'd join the forum and learn as much as I can, before jumping in. I'm sure I'll be posting lot's of questions. Many thanks in advance for your input!
