(2) No chicken yet but we're thinking about having four or so. (3) Still researching breeds. Hoping to find ones that are good with children. (4) Google search (5) Hiking, gardening, Art, graphic design (6) We have four boys and a cat in the family. We recently moved into a house with a one acre lot. We're excited to finally have the space to contemplate adding some chickens into the mix!
