I have had chickens on and off, (mostly on) for the last 30 odd years. I live with my husband and 2 dogs in one of the coast of Virginia. Over the years I've had Rhode Island Reds and Sex Links. For a number of years I sold my excess eggs but no longer. Right now I just have 6 Dominics, 2 roos and 4 hens, 5 Buff Orpintons, 2 roos and 3 hens.
