    I am planning a very small flock for eggs in a municipality that does not have a by-law pro or con for chickens,my neighbours are OK with the idea. I am using the Mother Earth News instructions for the dog house coop. Got one from Freecycle. Can't wait for the adventure to begin, I have had chickens in a past "life" and even raised birds for meat. My present husband can't bear that thought of killing anything so eggs is it.

    Welcome! If you are going to have hens just for eggs, read all you can on the types that lay the most eggs per week and eat the least. Lots of folks only raise chickens for the eggs.It's hard to kill home-grown chickens for some people and not so hard for others. I agree with both ways..
