I am new and looking for advice on SEVERAL topcis. I live in Western Washington where we have mild summers and mild winers with "occasional" snow. I am looking to set up a backyard pen with only a couple hens. I really only want about a dozen eggs or less a week. SO here iare my questions! #1 what breed should I be looking for? I really would like a high yeilding QUITE breed since I only have a 1/3 of an acre. #2 Will two hens be enough to produce a dozen eggs a week? #3 I have a 16x6 space I was looking at locating the hens in. Right now it is overgrown with weeds and blackberry bushes that need to be cleaned out. Does that would like enought room? It looked like enough to me from the plans I was previewing. Anything else I need to know? We have two kids, a dog and cat. The hen house iwll be enclosed so only the cat, squirrls and maybe some bunnies will even be able to get close.
