Hi, I'm Bill from Denver NC, I'm starting up again with chickens. We relocated to NC 11 years ago from PA. I used to house about 25 chickens, a pygmy goat and a couple of babydoll southdown sheep, which we didn't bring with us. I contacted the local authorities and it's no problem having chickens here, so I'm going to get some during chick days at tractor supply. I have a small chicken tractor right now, that will house about 4 - 6 hens. They will mostly just be using it to sleep at night. They will free range otherwise. I plan on building a bigger coop over the summer so I can get more next year. My brooder is ready to go with the MHP in place all I need are the chicks!
