How long have you owned chickens?

No answer yet

How many chickens do you own?

I'm only allowed 8 chickens, and I like them small, but maybe I'll have to have 2 sex linked Comets, or hybrids, so that I'll get 2 large eggs a day.

What breed of chickens do you own?

I like small chickens [as in d'uccles, or OEGH], I like feathered legs, and I like muted colors [as in porcelain]. So if a buff silkie was crossed with an OEGH, that would probably be my first choice. HOWEVER, I adore dark brown eggs, so perhaps there would have to be a bantam MARANS in the mix.

What do you like most about owning chickens?

I enjoy their company. I enjoy watching them, and the sense of peacefulness that overcomes me when I do. They are therapeutic for me. And last but not least, I adore fresh eggs.

How many people (other than yourself) have you helped get started owning chickens?

No answer yet

Introduction

Hi -- I live in Cary, and we have not been allowed to have chickens. But now that I will soon be able to have chickens, here's what I like best, and will be looking for. Since I'm only allowed 8 chickens, I'll have to choose carefully.
