    Hello everyone! I'm a complete beginner. I don't even have chickens yet, but plan on getting some this fall or next spring at the latest. I'm going to free-range. The coop will be located inside a fenced 1.5 acre pasture, but they will also have occasional access to the garden and orchard. I plan to have a flock of primarily Dominique's , but may mix in a few other breeds for fun. Current plan is to have 12-15 birds including 1 rooster.
    I'm looking forward to learning from the rest of you!
