Hello all - not sure why it took this long to figure out that my parents need chickens, but I am looking to jump in. My father raised them during WWII and I think it'd be a great past-time for him in retirement as well as providing them (and me) fresh eggs. They live in suburban Philadelphia with about 1.5 acres. I checked with the local code and it's allowed for their lot size. I would like to get a book on the subject to determine if this is realistic (I only visit them 1x per week or so so I won't be available to do the day-to-day stuff) and how to set this up. Any book tips or points on this site would be great! Thanks in advance.
