Hey to all on BYC! I am new to not only BYC, but to having chickens! Currently, I am still in the research phase and want to make sure I can provide a good home for chickens before I take the leap. The only time I have been around chickens is with people with A LOT of property on which their chickens had plenty of space - and the people had plenty of space between them and the chickens! If anyone is local to the L.A./Orange County area and wouldn't mind letting me stop by for a look at their set up, I would really appreciate it. I am looking for probably just two chickens that are good layers if you have any suggestions. I have a 2 year old German Shorthair Pointer, so they would need to get along. (Hopefully that is not asking for too much). Thanks!
