    Hello,

    I'm currently building my hen house waiting for my chicks to arrive on May 2. It was hard to pick which breds to get but we ordered 3 EE, 1 Buff O, 1 Dominique, 1 Austro

    The chicks will be sharing their run with my bees. I'm hoping to have a permiculture effect with the chicks eating the pests of the bees.

    My patient husband, easy going daughter, wild son, two dogs and a cat all share this house as well in the middle of the city.

    I used to live in Kennesaw. Are you in Atlanta proper or one of the suburbs?
