I am retired after 44 years of working. We love the two sheep we now have. I know many people that have chickens and have helped us decide we wanted chickens as pets and for eggs. A neighbor down the road is going to start trying to hatch chickens. So when he asked it we would like some of his we said yes. I have read on here how great they are and how much fun. My grandchildren will love them. I have already learned so much from this site. Been looking at all the pictures of the coops and runs.
