New to BYC and soon to be newly back into chickens. (last had chickens on the farm when I was 6, turning 60 this July LOL) Closing on a small 10 acre place in early May. First thing we'll probably do after getting the tomatoes and peppers in the ground is work on a coop and run. Figuring on 8 to 10 hens to start, probably no rooster since we are interested in eggs for ourselves and friends, not hatching chicks or raising for meat. Hopefully planning on having the 'girls' help with mulching and garden pest control. I've read a lot, found out some of my ideas were wrong to start with and some where partly right, with a little modification.
Any way looking forward to chickens again!
Chad
