Hey all, Just introducing myself here. My husband and I are planning on starting a small flock of hens next year (maybe with a rooster in the future once we test out a few breeds), and I love all the information I find here on the forums (and all the different perspectives). I'm in a rural town along the northern Wasatch Front in Utah. We've got about an acre of land, a toddler, and a Canaan Dog. Starting next spring we're going to get our chickens, plant some fruit trees, and grow as many veggies as we can while keeping our sanity. Haha! Right now we're planning on starting with 6 hens, all different breeds: Australorp, Welsummer, Light Brahma, Speckled Sussex, Ameraucana (Easter Egger if I can't arrange to get a true one), and a Silver-laced Wyandotte.
