Hi, My name is Karen and I am a stay at home mom of 7 children. We have raised egg laying chickens in the past, but because of a heavy population of raccoons, we no longer have any. The kids have been raising meat chickens to sell at our local fair for the past couple of years and have had fun doing it. My 4yo son was sad to see the chickens go this year so I promised him that I would get him some more egg layers because he LOVED taking care of the chickens. We have gotten the raccoon population down, so it is time to start all over again...I am thinking early spring getting some chicks. I am here to see what breed others have had success at for egg layers. I look forwad to meeting you all!
