Hi All! Joining in from Western NC and hoping to gather some useful tips and information as I embark on my first chicken journey. Having backyard chickens has been a long time dream and things are just now finally falling into place to make it happen. We bought a new home with enough land and no restrictions to stand in the way but I want to be well prepared before I get started. My hope is to work on a coop this winter and start with incubated chicks come early Spring. Any and all advice is welcome. I am just hoping to start off on the right foot and avoid any major mistakes as we add to the family!
