    With the cool of the season my wife Ruth & I are moving in a few weeks to a farmhouse in Georgia. It is in a rather remote location and sits on an acre adjacent to a paved road. It has a small barn on it and it was my thought that perhaps attaching a small coop to it would allow the wife and I to harvest a few eggs over a few day. We don't use eggs every day. Having a few chickens is just one way to have some friendly critters around that give the both of us something to do daily. I found this website on Goggle and thought it was great that those who keep chickens learning from each other. I figure over the next month we can learn a hospitable breed, choose and begin to make some decisions about what type and how many will fit our wishes.
