Hello, I'm Zach and I got into raising chickens in March 2010. My wife agreed to let me get 6 hens (3 of which had to be her choice). I ordered 3 Easter Eggers and 3 Black Australorps from MyPetChicken.com. As I was waiting for those to arrive, I convinced my wife to let me get 2 more hens from a local farm supply store "just incase" there were losses during shipping from MPC. I now have 13 hens & a rooster who I think is absolutely beautiful. He is a Splash Silkie roo that crows just loud enough so that we can hear him if we are outside.
My 13 month old daughter loves to watch the "bok boks". She was so excited on her 1st birthday!
