This is Scott from Montana. We've raised chickens off and on for probably 15 years; Cornish Cross for a while, and now Rhode Island Reds. At present we have 9 old birds, probably 4 or 5 years old. Still getting 4 jumbo-sized eggs nearly every day, and some days 6. We have 6 youngsters (6 weeks old) to introduce to the flock, and I'll have some questions about that. Looks like there are a lot of knowledgeable people on here!
