Thanks for allowing me to join your group! I have no chickens right now but I have been thinking about getting a few for the eggs. I just know NOTHING about it and was just looking for some advice on what chickens are the best. I know that will be a touchy subject but I am looking for docile birds that lay a decent amount of eggs. I know noting about coop size, any info would be helpful. I have a large back yard and I am thinking about getting 10 birds. Is that a good start or too many? any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!
