    Hi everyone.
    My husband and I have just purchased property, and next year I will finally be able to have chickens. I've wanted chickens for a decade, but we didn't live where we could have them.
    I'm sure I will have many questions, and some of them might sound silly to some of you. I am in the heavy research stage right now, and research always includes questions for those that are actually involved in a process.
    Don't know yet what breed(s) we might want, but DO know that our purpose is to produce eggs. I don't have any desire to produce strictly meat birds.
    We're out in the country, so have a lot of room for a large run, but will not be able to "free range"
    I look forward to chatting with all of you.

    Welcome to BYC. I always think a large run is much better and safer for a flock.

    Welcome to BYC, and congratulations on the new property! I don't think any question is silly. You've certainly come to the right place to get them answered. The learning center has great tools to help you find the breeds that will work best for you.
