No, I’ve never had chickens before. As a matter of fact I’ve never even touched a chicken! I know I like eggs and that chicken’s look cute. I mean really, what more do you need to know?! I guess it should have been a red flag when my sister got me the book “Chickens for Dummies”! Okay, this is a good start. I’m big on preparing ahead of time and doing it right. I don’t want to be one of those people who gets taken by surprise or ends up in a nightmare. I started to read the book. Wow! There is a lot more entailed than I thought! That was a year ago that I got that book. I’ve just now got my coop plans outlined and emailing hatcheries to see where I want to buy the chickens.
