I started out on 2013 with 4 barred rocks, one died. I've moved into the country. My new spouse loves the girls and named them, lol We are wanting to sell eggs to neighbors and friends so were getting 5 more girls soon. Were hooked, lol Time to build a bigger coop and run for the soon to be 8 girls. On a side note, the veggie garden is loving the wonderful compost that is enriched with thegirls black gold, poop. Was thinking of getting another breed so i know who is who as far as age goes when they get oldrr. Now to decide, was thinking RIR but heard they can be mean. Any suggestions for good temperment and great layers.
