New to chickens

I am Wayne Renkin, living in the CBD (inner city/ down town) of Pretoria, South Africa.

Currently, I have 2 chickens (got them a few days ago) for: (1) laying eggs; (2) Being my compost workers. I am brand new to chickens and read a lot, especially on this website)

I am really passionate about greening the city and urban farming. One day I hope to really have a good urban farm going. For now have I doing very small scale things (i.e. 2 chickens, some vegetables).
I also get excited about composting and experimenting with composting.
I have a red wiggler worm farm (again, small), bokashi (although not really using it becasue of the more traditional composting and now the two chickens)

So for now I am learning as much as I can.
