    Hello!!! Just starting with chickens. My 7 yr old DD and I have 4 in our little coop. I just love reading all this information and hope to become better educated about raising my ladies. I am a foster parent to 5, 1 adopted, 2 bio, 2 grandkids. Thought fresh eggs would be a great idea. I live in Massachusetts. Nice to meet you....Cindy

    oh, i was going to mention, if it gets in the teens where you live, you will have to come up with some way to keep their water from freezing. when i lived in Kansas i put a light bulb close to the water in a shallow pan with a float valve but you could also use an aquarium heater
