    Hello from rural Pickington, OH. I just got back from Afghanistan and was researching raising chickens while there. I ordered 4 started birds from Meyer and they s/b here the end of April. I am excited. I decided on pullets due to I really dont have the time to raise chicks and it would be unfair to them. My spouse hasn't been totally convinced yet because we lost 2 dogs last year w/i 5months(older with health conditions) and he's afraid to get attached. He was alone both times when they passed away. We have 2 dogs and a rabbit and our kids are grown and he's retired so just a matter of time.

    Welcome! I am also in OH. Don't worry about your spouse. They will grow on him. My husband wanted nothing to do with ours at first either. Now he's fine with the whole thing. Although I don't expect to see one on his lap any time soon.

    White Leghorn, Barred Plymouth Rock, Easter Egger, Rhode Island Red 1 each. They are cold hardy and will give me the color eggs I'm wanting.
