HI, I live in the Virgin Islands and am tired of paying $6 for a dozen organic eggs....I have never owned chickens before, but how hard can it be? My neighbors had some and I helped them a little before my roommate's dog killed them all... sorry. Roommate is gone so I figured i'd start a flock of my own! I ordered six Plymouth Rock hen pullets and am impatiently waiting for them to arrive any day now. Not entirely sure what my own dog will think. I have a five year old female blue pit bull. She hates cats but doesn't really know what to think about the wild chickens in my neighborhood. Guess we will all have to be properly introduced! Got some land cleared and coop is being built tomorrow by my construction worker friends whom I bribed with beer and BBQ. So far very impressed with this website and its information. I'm sure it will be coming in real handy. Will post more as the excitement unfolds!
