i have raised chickens since i was five and every year we get more and i love them all so much individually! my chickens are strictly pets and they all have names. the only product we collect from them is the eggs, which we enjoy at home. i currently have 14 chickens- including 6 new baby chicks that i just purchased 4 days ago! i have looked on this site multiple times before i became a member and i find it SO HELPFUL. i hope to meet many other chicken-lovers just like myself.
