    I've been haunting this site before and after getting chickens so thought it about time I joined.We are on 1/4 of an acre in the surburbs.Local bylaws allow 6 chickens max[no roosters]At the moment we have just 4.Haven't had chickens since my childhood some few years ago ahem.Thrilled to again be at the start of a chicken journey.
