    My sister and I decided to do something great for our families and raise happy chickens for yummy fresh eggs and hours of entertainment for our kids! We have a 20 acre farm with a large barn that has a ready made coop...the size of 2 horse stalls. We went 3 local feed stores and have collected 2 deleware hens, 4 americaunos(sp) and 2 rhodies, along with t5 cochins that are still babies. We have only had them a few days, and already have lots of eggs! I am hooked!

    Welcome. I just started this spring. This site has been a huge help for me from building the coop to everyday chicken relations to .... yes .... that faithful day the rest of the girls begged me to do something about the 8 teenage roosters with over active hormons [​IMG]. Two made the dinner table that night and two now have a wonderful home in North Freezerton.
