Hi! I'm new to the group. We just recently moved to a house in Stafford, Virginia where we can have chickens! We have a little over 2 acres of land and I've always wanted a few chickens. I grew up on a farm and it's one of the animals I miss having. We currently have 9 rescued kitties, 3 English Mastiffs and a German Shepherd. You could say we are animal lovers. We are just starting our search for chickens and a coop to keep them in. Any ideas or suggestions would help. We had mostly Rhode Island Reds growing up, but we're really not particular. We'd just like to have some fresh eggs and possibly they can help with the yard. Thanks so much for having me!
