    Hi there! We live in the NE GA in the country on my husband's grandparents' land. There are goats on one side of us and beef cattle on the other. We do not farm the farm we love on (except for our garden) and don't have chickens yet but I have wanted them for two years. Hubby finally agreed to me chicken-sitting a friend's small young flock while they are "homeless" for a few weeks waiting on their house to be ready. They are moving and have to be out of their rental next weekend.

    We are preparing for them and are first making a temporary shelter from the supplies she is bringing for them. There are eight in her flock and she (and I) are hoping that she will be leaving four with me. [​IMG]

    I am searching out more info on getting their area ready and have been reading up on chicken care both online and in books.

    Looking forward to meeting you all!
