    Welcome to BackYardChickens Two is better than one for sure. No matter where you keep them in your yard make sure they have a secure coop and pen or run covered with at the very least bird netting. You will find all kinds of critters will want to get at them, things you may not even be aware of i.e., hawks, raccoons, skunks, your pet dog, neighborhood cats etc. With only two as long as you keep the coop clean smell should not be an issue. Chickens are a great addition/addiction. It will be hard to not want/get more. Good luck.

    I also started with just 2. Then I added a rooster that I rescued from a bad situation, and it's still going downhill from there. Browse this forum for lots of great tips, and check out the coops tab for lots of great ideas to get you started. You've found a great place full of very savy people to help you out.
