    We started out with 12 straight run chicks in early May, after 4 died from predators and 1 died from moldy feed we ended up with 4 roosters and 3 hens. The roosters have been fighting too much, so we went yesterday and bought 10 more hens and everyone is happy. One of the new girls gave me my first egg this morning and my husband just fried it up for breakfast. I love my chickens!
