    Hello everyone,
    I just recently found this site and am addicted already. It will be next spring before I can start my journey into chicken ownership. My hubby is military and we will be moving to Alabama and buying country acreage this fall, so for now I am educating myself and trying to figure out what we will start with. I am looking at the dual purpose breeds(mainly want the eggs and poss stock the freezer too)
    and some guineas (for bug patrol).

    Unfortunately we live in military housing so I can't sneak any in [​IMG]
    It has crossed my mind though.

    Welcome Nancy [​IMG] Lots of the hatcheries ship chicks in fall... I'd recommend getting some at that time then come spring you'll start getting eggs already. It also speeds up the coop building process when you have chicks in a brooder. Lots of great info here... watch out it is definitely addicting and we are all enablers! [​IMG]
