I am new here but not to chickens. I have about 90 hens and 7 roosters. From a few weeks to 2 years old. I have all different breeds. I even hatch my own mixed mutts. I have them mostly to sell the eggs and I also process them for dinner. Mine free range all day and stay in a coop at night that is more of a sturdy shed than a standard coop. I don't light or heat the coop but still get eggs year round because I always try to keep younger birds.
