I live in S. Ohio and I have 14 hens and 2 roosters, 1 wife and 4 daughters. So I love my chickens. It is a way for me to relax. Really it is a way for me to keep my sanity in a house of estrogen. Lol. I love my chickens and we are growing our flock to 50 in the spring. Our family feels more homely since we got our chickens. We love our eggs also.
