Hi, All,

After more than a year of sweet-talking and pleading and finally right-out nagging my husband for a chicken tractor - and after waiting for the county to approve a change in law so that residents can have laying hens in their back yards - I'm finally here!

The tractor isn't quite complete but it won't be long. I'm at the point where I'm having to decide on equipment and begin looking for a source for chickens. I don't want many - law will only allow me a max of 10, I believe - and I'm thinking I'll start with 4 to get my feet wet. My husband's family had chickens when he was a kid and my relatives had chickens so we know a bit about raising them. Probably just enough to be dangerous!

I'm in Northern Virginia. Have been reading about the swaps and would love to attend one. Is there a specific spot on this forum where upcoming swaps are listed?

Am sure I'll be asking numerous question as this process progresses. I'm getting excited now!

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Regards,
Sandy
