So my son asked if he could raise chickens and sell the eggs a couple months ago. His father and I try to encourage outdoor activities as much as we can, but I was thinking this was a little over my skill set. My husband however was raised on a farm and said Absolutely! So we are now the proud owners of 6 Barred Rock Hens and 1 Lavender Maran Roo. Our coop won't be here for another 3 weeks, so we had to make temporary arrangements. My son is so excited that he did his homework in the coop last night because the chickens arrived yesterday. I have to say that I believe I am already addicted and they won't lay eggs for another couple weeks.
