My husband and I have 3 amazing boys who love the outdoors and eggs...they LOVE eggs haha. Who doesn't love fresh eggs?! One of the many reason why we'll be getting chickens. We're also recently first time home buyers and are excited for this next chapter in our lives. I've been doing a lot of research and absorbing as much info as I can on raising chickens. I'm excited to be a part of this forum and share our journey I look forward to picking your brains about different subjects or reading info on previous posts.
We're obviously a family of five and do a lot of cooking/baking. Plus have family that would like eggs too. How many hens would you suggest we get or start off with? Also, what do people do when they get chickens unsexed and end up with some unwanted roosters?
