Hello! I just registered, and thought that I would introduce myself! We are hoping to become a new chicken family come spring, just a few laying hens for the backyard. We are within the city, so I would like to keep things small and manageable. I am looking for layers, and will likely just keep them around until they are old and grey (haha). Both my husband and I had chickens as children, but this site has been a great resource for brushing up on chicken care!
