    Nice writeup Fred. My Fred (named after his GF) will be graduating HS in a couple of months. Your writing brought me back to the farm of my childhood and the 200+ flock we maintained. As kids we used to trade a couple of eggs for a piece of candy and momma would trade in live birds for groceries.

    Thanks Fred, excellent page. You saved me from hours of seaching the archives and the members of BYC from my ignorant posts. I wish the page was longer!

    Fred's Hen's, thanks for this page and thanks for answering my posts! This is a very helpful page, I plan to start my flock with 15 hens and replenish with about a half dozen every other year or maybe 3 years depending on how they lay. We plan on the eggs and dual purpose, we will use them for all the resources they provide, and of course use thier compost in the gardens!!

    As always, I love your writings! You could write an amazing book. Wish I had looked at your page sooner as I struggle with the need to maintain egg production and enjoy an array of barnyard beauty. While I did not benefit from growing up on a farm, my boys are and they are charged with letting the birds out and then locking the up at night. To learn to appreciate the life of the birds, appreciate the food they give us, and the saddness when a favorite is grabbed by coyote. THat's life.
    Thanks Fred's Hens, Arielle
