    Hey everyone, my name is Michelle. I started my chicken family last spring. I was petrified of chickens, I wouldn't even get out of my car if there were free range chickens around. I decided it was time to get over that fear. My kids and I decided to get 32 chicks last spring and it for sure fixed my fear. Everyone loves them...even our boxer. :) So this spring my boyfriend and I got more layers so we are now up to 58 layers and 45 meat birds. The eggs from our layers we sell at a local store so it pays for the meat birds. Works out fantastic :) Have a great day everyone!

    We love that we are eating free chicken too :) Well we haven't technically eaten them yet but we did just put them in the freezer. :) Next year we just need to have a defferent setup for the meat birds. So I'm definately looking for ideas. Thank you for the welcome :)
