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!
