    Yep, New Orleans!!! Well, Slidell, which is just NorthEast of NOLA. I am getting ready to set up a chicken coop/pen in my back yard. I have a pretty big fenced dog kennel that I will use. Now, I am figuring out what coop I will build. Then, what chickens!!! We will see!!!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Google the Henderson Chicken Chart, it is really helpful for investigating breed charactoristics including productivity.
