Hi All, Just to give a background, from N.E. Pennsylvania. I live out in the country, but never had any farm type animals before. I have dogs, there are a lot of outside 'stray' cats. I have freshwater fish, saltwater fish, and lovebirds. I am planning on getting 3 hens in the spring. Yes, I truly am looking for just 3 of them. I am hoping to have some fresh eggs, and they'll be pets. I just ordered a pre-fab coop that I plan on customizing for now. It has a run attached to it since I don't trust the local wild-life to let them go free range. Now if I could let them do their thing and be free range, then I could see myself going nuts with chickens everywhere, I have 14 acres so room to roam. I am trying to figure out water / feed dispensers / bowls. I am super green as far as chickens so that is why I am here. I found this and one other forum that I've been looking at. Any advise is help!
