    Im Kristine from eastern NC. New to the site and looking into getting a few chickens. Finally have a house and yard to be able to have them. I definitely will have lots of questions in the coming weeks. So far this site has been a great place to gain information.

    Thanks everyone! I will probably be starting into my chicken adventures after I get back from vacation next week. Will let everyone know how that goes. Im sure as soon as I do I will be even more confused and have even more questions than I do now.

    I've been all over this site today. At times its a little overwhelming but been taking lots of notes. Any good book suggestions would be helpful.
