    Hello everyone!

    I found this site a few days ago while conducting some research. I am thinking about getting a small flock of egg chickens and was looking for info. What a fantastic site! Thanks to you guys and all the info on here, I now know what breed of chickens I want, what size coop I need to build for them, and all the details of chicken parenthood.

    I look forward to interacting with you all as I venture into this. I'll keep youo all posted on my progress.

    Thanks,

    Don

    [​IMG] from Kansas, Mainechowder! That's how I found the forum as well - stumbled upon it while doing research. [​IMG] So, what breeds have you selected?
