    Hello all!
    I'm Jo and I live in Western PA. My husband, 3 year old son, and I live on a little over an acre. We've been working on setting up the perfect coop in preparation for a small flock. My father raised large flocks growing up and I sure do miss the fresh eggs and joy that chickens bring. We originally planned on brooding chicks from the farm store, but I'm thinking I'd rather adopt some older ladies that need a good home. I've been scouting these forums looking for advice and I'm so happy to have so many experienced people to learn from!

    Hello Jo, it's very nice to meet you! I'm new here too, but I've been a "lurker" since I started my bantam flock last spring. This is a great resource for chicken keeping! Best of luck finding your girls!
