I started by ordering hatching eggs from ebay. I didn't think they would hatch since I live far away in Hawaii. We have residential chicken codes, but its okay if the neighbors don't complain. I hatched 4 Buff Orpingtons, 4 Jersey Giants, 3 Austrolorps, 2 Lemon Cuckoo Orpington, and one white Rhode Island. All the hens of these breeds are docile and stay within my fenced yard.My town just started allowing us to have a maximum of 6 hens, no roosters.
I have always wanted chickens but I’m nervous about starting
What/ where should I research first?
I have Storeys, hobby farms and a chicken in every yard books on my couch right now and I’m a bit overwhelmed
I just hatched out some Bresse Chickens, they are very active and flighty. I hope when they grow up they don't fly over the fence. In addition, the Bresse hens may get annoying after they lay an egg. I saw a video of it, it makes a loud clucking sound to let everyone know she layed an egg.
