Hello everyone! I'm a new member on this site, though I've been browsing it for a while. We've been slowly learning about homesteading and trying it out, finding out we love it! Our newest jump into homesteading is chickens! We'll be turning our old shed into a new coop and fencing in an area for them to free range. I know nothing about chickens so I've been doing a lot of research and trying to pick some good breeds. So far I like the Orpington, Barred Rock, & Astralop. They'll be for eggs. I also have cats and a dog on over an acre of land, a garden, and hopefully down the road we'll see about adding goats into the mix.
