Hello. Stumbled upon this forum whilst searching for information on raising chickens in my backyard. And hey! There is a forum for that. So here I am. I've got quite a few questions about raising these in my backyard for eggs, companionship and possibly fertilizer? So the site looks like it will be able to help me out with my many questions. I am from South-east Michigan, and this cold weather can kiss my rear end. Thanks!
