    I don't yet have chickens. Am trying to learn before I buy lol. I am frequently away from home on weekends. And sometimes I don't get home from work before dark. So even though I want chickens I'm hesitate. Hoping this sight can help me make my decision.

    WELCOME!
    I, too, researched for quite a while before I took the plunge into keeping chickens.
    They are really quite easy to keep.
    If you're not home much on the weekends, make sure you put a lot of extra feeders and waterers out for them and they are in a predator-proof enclosure.
    Chickens pretty much take care of themselves otherwise.
    And they're SO MUCH FUN!!!!!

    [​IMG] You are doing things the right way. Research, select, and plan and you will come up with a workable way of maintaining a flock. Good luck.
