I've been raising chickens for 2 years. I tool up this hobby when I moved from Chicago. I am a kidney dialysis patient, so this what I do on days that I am home. We have about 65 chickens. I have leghorns, barred rock, R.I. reds and some jungle fowl that was given to us from a friend of the family. When the friend was moving into the city she gave the j. fowl to us. I try to get out to the coop when I am feeling good but it can be so darn hot outside.
