Hi my name is Cindy York. I am about to start ready raising chickens for the eggs. as my aunt calls them City eggs are thin in in the shell. I am so tired of trying to crack open an egg and crushing the egg shell. I want stronger and larger eggs. We are now into October, does anyone know when I should go get my baby chicks? I guess I need to also let everyone know I have 5 dogs and 8 cats all live in the house. Anyones help with this issue is greatly appreciated. I do not want to give up any of my pets but I want some chickens.
