I don't actually have any chickens yet but I've been really enjoying this site and the forums as I get ready to finally do this. It has been a tremendous help in gathering the information that I need. My wife and I have been talking about raising chickens for years. We both really watch what we eat. Eggs are one of our main sources of protein and we try to eat as clean as possible, meaning no chemicals or additives. Raising our own chickens is about the best way we can think of to guarantee a clean, healthy food source. I look forward to learning from all of you and sharing as I go.
