I have been reading all the information on this site for a couple weeks now, it has been very helpful so thanks to all the contributors. We have decided to get chickens, my kids love the fresh eggs that we get from a friend, so I thought we would get some chicks to have our own. We are trying to be very conscientious of our food choices for our kids and would also like to have meat birds as well. If anyone knows where I could get them processed near Port Huron please let me know. Thanks so much.
