Anyone here have chickens? We're planning on getting some this spring. I'm reaching out to friends to see if anyone has any older laying hens, but of course, we also *need* chicks

What are your fav chicken resources? We are in MT and get hot summers and cold winters. Our coop won't have power (it freaks me out as a fire hazard!) so def doing the deep litter method. Also we live on a large property so our chickens will be (mostly) free range.

Our kids are pumped! Tell me all the things!
