My flock started out as 10 hens, peacefully living on 10 acres of free range and a wonderful little house that I, an old grandma, built all by myself and was proud. Then I tried hatching eggs and my flock suddenly became 45 hens and 5 roosters and DH had to come in and build a bigger hen house and I started selling eggs, not to be confused with making enough enough money to buy feed. Then last month I suddenly found myself with two incubators and 2 dozen eggs in them gently sitting on a table in my bedroom and low and behold I had 20 to hatch. What am I going to do? DH is too old and feeble to go at it again and hes furious at me. I certainly cant do it and the hens are throwing a fit now at how tightly they are stacked in that hen house. At roosting time you should hear the fighting that goes on before they finally calm down accepting the spot they fought for. There is no market here for Chicks. Not even for free. Im deep in the country and boonies and all these folks have had their fill of raising chickens and going thru all this mess. They gladly come to me for eggs and occasional Roos, but as far as taking on a flock.. no way. Has anyone ever double deckered a hen house? Like first level 4 feet and second level 6 feet? awk!
