Chickens?

So, ever since we purchased our "little piece of Heaven" I've been thinking about chickens. But I don't know much about them. Besides they taste really good when you bread and fry them! Ha, Ha, Ha! Seriously though, I've been doing my research and checking out sites like these:
Oh My Stinkin Heck, Memoirs of a Farm Wife, Roosterhen Diaries, Rurality to name just a few. I've been looking at chicken coops trying to figure out what will work for us and what everyone else thinks is the "perfect" coop. I've been researching types of chickens trying to find the ones that are good egg layers, as well as, looking for the niceness factor. I don't want to hate them once I get them. So, as usual, it's taking me forever. I take a while to make major decisions. So, if you know anything about chickens leave me a comment. I like choices, so I need lots of information!

This is where Grandad used to get his chicks, etc. from: http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/index.html

Here is a link to a family over by Charleston - I'm sure that she (the mom) would be more than happy to field questions - I've never met her in person, but I'm told she's good people! ;-) Her name is Shannon Strode: http://www.heavenlyhugsandkalicokisses.com/
