    Hello! Been snooping around for a few weeks and I figured I might as well join. We bought a house in St Mary's county, MD a month or so ago and I've been eager to start a little bit of self-sufficient living. Initially I wanted ducks instead of chickens, but I found out duck eggs make me violently ill, so we'll either do a mixed flock or just chickens. We had pheasants when I was a kid, but I haven't had animals in a while. Eager to spend the fall and winter preparing; luckily the BF is pretty handy so we should have a snug little coop and run come spring for a few ladies. Thank you for already being such a great resource!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Do you know if you are permitted to have chickens at your new home? It's a good thing to find out before getting birds. You can count on a neighbor turning you in - if they aren't legal.

    Drumstick diva, yep! No HOA, no county restrictions on livestock except cows/horses per acre, although Maryland requires registration of flocks.
