Hello everyone. Just started my chicken experience a few months ago. I have used a lot of the info found on this site. It was very helpful. I butchered a few roosters a friend gave me. So far I have a much better appreciation for where my food comes from. I am looking forward to start getting fresh eggs. So far I have 22 birds. 20 were chick I purchased from Murry McMurry they are about 4 weeks old.
