I saw that Ed was retiring too. If I had the means, I would consider buying it. I'm hoping I can get some birds from him this year too. Still undecided if I want eggs or birds. I like the surprise element of eggs, but until I know I can hatch something successfully, I'm more interested in one of his breeding trios to get started. We bought a new house last summer. 2.8 acres and came with a coop and run. Experienced chicken farmers have told us we can handle a dozen with our current coop/run. I want to build more coops and runs, so I can manage several flocks like Ed.
