    After years of considering raising chickens just 12 miles west of NYC I just received my Eglu Go coop. 2 Silkie chicks are arriving later this summer! Any other Montclair/West Orange/Verona area folks on this board?

    Hello![​IMG] and [​IMG] from South Carolina! This is a great place to meet people and learn about keeping chickens. I started with 5 and in less than a year I have 21, and we just had 8 chicks hatch this week! I LOVE chicken math! I have been having so much fun I even started a chicken blog!
    Everyone here LOVES pictures, and remember there are no dumb questions! I look forward to hearing more about your flock as it grows!

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm very excited to get started. I'm starting out with just 2 bantams but who knows??? My backyard is small and my coop is smaller so my flock won't be getting all that large. Depending on how things go I'm thinking 3 or 4 total.
