    Hi everyone! My husband and I recently moved to the country on a small 1.2 acre of land. I would really like to start raising some small livestock and after some research, decided on chickens. I'm not even close to actually purchasing any chickens but they're coming in the future. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions so be patient and thanks in advance!

    Welcome from South East PA.

    X2 on the state thread idea. Here is a direct link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/248345/pennsylvania-unite
    We have so much fun, even people from Australia and New Zealand come to be "honorary Pennsylvanians".

    Just drop in and say hi or read the last few pages.
