we have raised meat chickens over the past 2 years and this year we decided to try layers as well. Currently we have 23 broilers, and 14 layers not certain of all the breeds, may ask for some help identifying them. Also have 3 doz eggs in incubator due to hatch July 8. Found this site by googling questions about my chicks, and found the info on this site very helpful. My husband and I live on a 6acre yard, we have 4 children 3 dogs, 4 cats, 4 guinea keets and 5 calves. I grew up on a farm and just love it!
