My sister & I were raised on a chicken ranch in Clark County, WA. So I learned early about chickens, I had to help feed, gather eggs, clean & candle them too! The hi-lite of our times, my Dad would let us go with him on the egg route. We got a 1,000 baby chicks every spring, which means we had to sell and butcher the old hens. Dad would hire a couple guys to clean out the many chicken houses, so the new poulets would have a nice clean house when they started laying. We also had cattle, pigs (for meat) and a big garden, we farmed 80 acres, so we put up a lot of hay too. My sister and I each had a horse.
It has been about 20 years since I have had chickens, I finally was able to get nine little poulets from a farm store and my son is building me a chicken coop (in between snow storms) that is!!
