Living on a mountaintop outside the city is a great place to be. Growing up my Grandma always had chickens. At an early age I acquired the taste for fresh farm eggs. I don't care what all the advertising says. Store-bought eggs taste like store-bought eggs. I am looking forward to having fresh eggs here. My "backyard" consists of eight acres. So I decided there was no time like the present to start my backyard flock.
