    Hello everyone. I am starting my journey with chickens soon, I am a city girl, I know very little about chickens so I figured for the sake of my poor chickens, I better join a forum for some help! I have 5 kids, 4 boys, 1 girl. I am starting on chickens for the eggs, I buy fresh farm and its getting out of hand to drive 40 miles one way to buy a months worth of eggs! I do not have any yet, do not even have a coop but starting my research now and hoping to have chickens by early spring 2010!
