Eds Backyard Flock

  1. ThreeBoysChicks
    My name is Ed. As a child I raised Japanese Bantam chickens and loved doing it. So as my three sons were growing up, I wanted them to experience the joy and responsibility of chickens. So we started on our journey of Backyard Chickens. But as many of you may have experienced, the boys really didn't get into the chickens. They will gather the eggs now and then, but hey it was a good excuse for Dad to build a chicken house and have chickens again.
