Ok so i am new to the forum and new to having chickens. i am wanting to have chickens only for the eggs not wanting to breed. now i'm not new to forums so i will be doing a lot of searching but if some of yall could chime in with a few answers. 1. best egg laying chicken (best eggs to eat, biggest, most eggs laid in a year) 2. what to feed both as chick and full grown (i will have them penned most of the time letting the roam every once in a while) 3. do i need to put a top on the fence it will be around 4' tall and will be about 15' x 10' in size 4. i have a 5'x8' shed that is 5' tall how many chickens is a good number to have for that size coop and fenced in area. 5. do i need to have a lot of shade for them? (its hot as HECK down here) 6. anything else you think i need to know. Thanks, Eric S.
