Hello all! My name is Trish. I have a wonderful husband, a year and a half old daughter and another one due any day. Our family just moved to a house on an acre and as soon as I'm settled with the new baby I plan on adding chickens to our family. I'm so excited and I can't wait to get started! I'm trying to do as much research as possible now while I have the time. As of right now.... I know absolutely nothing about raising chickens. It's very important that they be good egg layers and have a good temperament (Is a good temperament possible in a chicken?). I would love any advise. Anybody have anything they wish they would have known before owning chickens to share with me? Any suggestions on good books? Do they make "Owning Chickens for Dummies"? I can't wait to learn from everyone. Thanks!!!
