    Mid west Michigan
    Hello, My name is Scot. I live in western Michigan with my family. we just recently got our first chickens ( in March) and ducks as well. I bought Plymouth Rocks. for their cold hardiness, egg production and meat. we have 5 hens and 1 rooster. I already want more and a different breed or 2 as well. I think in the spring I will also try and hatch some of my Rocks and raise those for meat.I am open to any advice and comments. feel free to ask me questions also, thanks for having me, UnoT.
