So.... we want eggs. Delicious, delicious eggs. We are, Me, 33 years old and afraid of being pecked and of a chicken pulling out a blood feather (if they HAVE blood feathers?) Mom, 57 short, fear-dances around when chickens flap in outrage. Hubby, 48 WV boy who laughs at us because we think chickens are "wild animals" then there's Son a 16 month old who may or may not chase chickens should he see them. Are we doomed or is this something we can do with proper preparation? we can have 3 hens in our zoning. Ive checked out many, many books from the library, are there any threads on this forum, any books or videos that will help us? we really really want to do this, but i want to be well armed with knowledge first! teach me, o chicken masters!
