Hello, I'm starting my flock this spring and I can't wait to get started. The hard part is deciding on which breed to get when you are only going to have 3-4 birds. I really want Icelandic birds since I'm Icelandic but then I would need to hatch them out and deal with roosters if I get roosters. I'll be blogging about my experience on my blog http://www.knittingwitholof.com I will also be starting my own backyard bees. It will be a busy spring and summer. Hopefully we will get more rain this year. Looking forward to getting to know other backyard chicken peeps.
