    We are moving to the Hampton Roads area this summer and hope to have some backyard chickens. Looking forward to learning and enjoying the adventure.

    It would be a good idea to post on the Virginia thread now, and get some feed back from the locals regarding what breeds do best in the climate, what type of coops etc. Where the best feed stores are and possibly any avian vets if there are any. Have you confirmed ahead of time, if chickens are allowed in your new area? Best to know now, than be panicked later.
