Hello! New to the forum today! Looks like fun! My husband and I are about ready to raise our own set of chickens to feed our family of 3. Although when I've told my daughter about what we would do with the chicken eggs and chickens themselves, she says, "No, don't hurt the chickens!" ha ha She's in for a rude awakening.... we'll help her through the process. Anyway, to my question. Our neighbors have 3 chickens and one rooster. They are free range and spend a decent amount of time in our yard as well (we have no problem with it...) They have always shared their eggs with us. If we raise our own chickens how would they get along - with the rooster and hens and all? Should we just get hens? Would be benefit from having a rooster too? I just want to make sure we wouldn't have any issues bothering their chickens and having success with ours at the same time. We get along really well with our neighbors. Thanks for the input!
