Im very new to chickens. Almost complete with building my coop and run. Im looking to start off with 3 chickens. The coop is being build with 6 nesting areas if I want to increase up to 6 chickens. Since Im in the North East I was thinking of Road Island Reds but open for to your input. I cannot have any Roosters in my town. So only Hens. I found this site while doing my research on types of chickens to get and what I needed in my chicken coop.
