Hi, thank you for letting me join! I've been watching this community off and on for YEARS now! Since at least '09 to give a rough estimate. I'll be getting my own place here soon hopefully just looking for the right one. One place I have in mind has a 1/2 acre of land while the other is something like .3 or .4 acres of land. I currently do not have chickens and actually am in the process of doing research to see which breed (s) fit my needs best! So I will definitely post a thread around here soon enough to look for some recommendations! In the mean time I am a small scale meat rabbit breeder, I mainly work with mutts (dutch, holland, mini rex, lion head, Netherland crosses. I created this cross myself) and I look forward to eventually tanning their pelts as well! I also have a cat with food sensitivities and part of the reason I want chickens is so I can get him on a full raw diet.
