We have 34 chickens. A bunch of different breeds. We got them for eggs to share with friends and neighbors etc. My husband and I have 2 (soon to be 3) kids and they love the chickens!! Our oldest (2yrs old) is great with them! We got the majority of our chickens in a variety pack of sorts but they gave us an idea for what breeds were included however we are trying to fill in some gaps! We have a few “chicken friends” but they are all fairly new to it as well so we wanted a place to go for answers to any questions we might have along the way. Our most experienced chicken friend suggested BYC!
