I am so new I haven't got my chickens yet. My husband just finished the coop and is working on the fencing to keep out the critters. I am planning on getting 6 laying hens to start - I even have names picked out. I am a recently retired math teacher and I am enjoying my "free" time. I have three cats, a Great Dane and a Chihuahua. I am very excited about getting my chickens

It's always good to see another Floridian join us! Come say hi on our state thread:
https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread

What breed of chickens are you planning on?

Thanks for joining us, nice to have you here!

P.S. I love Great Danes and grew up with a Chi...it would be fun to see a photo of your dogs (if you care to share)!

Not sure what kind yet. Will talk to my "chicken" guy on Saturday. He is a local who was recommended by a close friend from church. She got her chickens through him, and she wanted a special kind. He has a good reputation for having very healthy, happy, productive birds. I feel like an expectant momma, I am so excited.

When I am more comfortable with the layout and how to's of the website I will share some pix.
