    Hi, all! My husband and I are looking into getting our first chickens in the spring. We've been thinking about this for several months, and I think we've finally made up our minds to do it. We'll spend the fall/winter researching breeds and choosing plans for/building a chicken tractor for a very few hens (3-5, I think). We're very new to this, and I'm hoping we learn lots from this website. So far, the forum looks awesome!
