Hello from New Jersey! I do not even have my baby chicks yet but they are on the way and the coop is almost finished so pictures will be up as soon as all is done. I have 2 sons 13 and 14, a wonderful husband (who is building the coop), 3 cats, 2 dogs, and one lizard. We will have 3 baby girl hens soon. I have a huge garden that I expect the ladies to help fertilize as soon as they are old enough. I am so glad the town I live in finally allowed 3 backyard chickens, but I have a question. What should I do when these girls are older and stop laying. I will want to keep them and get more for the egg production. Any ideas of how to talk to the town about that?
