not to change a light bulb... but to make a flock? i would love to have 2 laying hens, mainly as pets. (have had names for them for years...only recently acquired a yard big enough to actually have them!) Is 2 too few? or is it enough for them to have each other and do all the things chickens need other chickens to do (like establish a pecking order)... would rather not get in a pecking order fight with ONE pet chicken--for fear i'd lose my house to her!) I'd appreciate any advice you can give me... OK OK--i'll tell you their names... Mildred and Matilda...(milly and tilly to friends) thanks so much, rene.
