    Hello, my name is Maggie and I am just getting started on my BYC journey. I recently purchased a property with my husband with over an acre of land and we hope to start homesteading more. In addition to my vegetable garden we have decided to add chickens to our lives. I have been doing research for a while now and we have decided on Barred Rocks. We will be finishing our coop next week and then we will be on the way to setting up our run and ordering chicks probably early next year. Hopefully in that time I can find even more needed information here.

    Welcome, you will love it!! Chickens are wonderful. Build a bigger coop than you think you will need because 'chicken math' will hit :)
