    This comming fall (Sept 2017?) I will be moving to the Dominican Republic and I want to raise chickens for eggs and meat. I will have plenty of room on the property. I will not have electricity, but I will have water. I am free to build a coop/pen. I do not know what breeds are available as I will not be purchasing from a hatchery. I can use a lot of advice! I am very excited about doing all of this and look forward to learning a lot.

    Hi and [​IMG]! It sounds like you'll be starting an exciting adventure. There is a lot of information at the BYC Learning Center to help you get started: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. I'd recommend that you also acquire some books, if possible, like Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens to have on hand...especially if you won't have an internet connection.

    Best of luck to you!
