    Hello, we just picked up our 4 Hamburg chickens last weekend. Never have tried raising chickens before, but wanted to for a long time. We are in southern Louisiana, and know absolutely nothing so I think you will see lots of questions. Glad I found This site.

    This has been a great resource for me to learn SO many things about chickens!
