For several years, I have wanted to have a few layers. I think I'm ready to share this experience with my 11-year old. I've read books, scoured the internet, have a coop/run, feeder/waterer for 4-5 hens. I think I have the basic knowledge to get started. Just waiting for the pullets at the end of June. Wish us luck! I look forward to learning from members of this group!
