Hi, my name is Jane, I'm a mother of three busy boys and I live on one acre in the country. I live in Ohio and I am wanting to get a couple chickens in the spring. I have never raised chickens and I'm not too sure about what I am doing yet. This seems like a friendly place to start asking questions and getting ready for the spring when I will be starting this new adventure. My main question to anyone out there, is which breed of chicken would be the best to start with (and best for the Ohio climate)? I will have plenty of room and I think will start with maybe 3 to 4 chickens. If anyone has any suggestions for me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!
