Chicken keepers here? I've started the permit process and been building a coop.

Congrats on getting started. I have/had several varieties and really enjoy them.

I have mainly Rhode Island Reds for eggs. The difference between home eggs and store bought is unbelievable.

Our egg is on the left, grocery store egg on the right.

We do the standard cornish rocs for meat.

These are all named McNugget.

Make sure your coop is predator proof. Raccoons and rats will kill them if they can get in. Predators are out of control here... I've lost over 100 chickens to hawks and owls. Am going to build chicken tractors before I get anymore.

Do you know which breed(s) you're getting?

Yes, my parents are holding my chickens for now in Carolina. I have two Lavender Orpingtons and two Double Laced Barnevelders. They are currently unsexed but I think the two Lavs are females and not sure about the Barnies. I'm going to try and get some pics up of the coop.

Nice, looks good! If you still have your dubia colony, the chickens will tear them up.
