    Hi :welcome

    I'm glad you could join us here! The learning centre is a great place to start, lots of great articles on getting your chicken adventures started. There is a great section on "Getting started" I'm sure you will find that most helpful. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
    Do you have any breeds in mind yet?

    Be sure to ask any questions that you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

    What do you think? My mom had what she called Bantys when I was young in Wisconsin. Reading on them now they say infrequent layers and small eggs.I recall our eggs being slightly smaller but not much, and I don't remember infrequent laying there always seemed to be plenty when I had the collecting chore! They were tough surviving those winters too!
