    Hi Ezeigler,

    welcome-wagon.gif

    Nice to have you with us. Where are you in the Keystone state? I am in Stroudsburg...right near the Delaware Water Gap along Rt. 80 about 10 miles before entering NJ.

    Out of my backyard. You'll love having chickens. We've had them for the past 4 years. Do you have gardens?

    Yes I have a vegetable garden in the spring and summer. Haven't yet gotten into year round gardening. Although I'm interested in it. I would love to have a greenhouse in the future with solar power.

    I'm not sure what breed(s) I'm getting yet. Was just looking online last night. I'll be getting my first ones from tractor supply company during their 'chick days' there are ones that lay bluefish purplish and pinkish eggs. Thought that was cool. I want ones that lay lots of eggs. :) will definitely save us lots of money we eat a lot of eggs and I live to bake and I know a few people: friends and family, who would buy from me, you know. Not on the books...

    Welcome to the group!

    You'll love chickens. They are very entertaining.

    I think we are all looking forward to the spring gardens here. So much to plan.
