    I was told I would "lose a few" when I started this project so I purchased six approximately week-old New England Reds. I have not lost any, not that the cats wouldn't like to help me with that! I am just a little overwhelmed at the thought of collecting a half dozen eggs every day & may have to go into business, not in the original plan! Thanks for the site and the advice, it is appreciated

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] Start saving your egg cartons now. You will need them later. [​IMG] It is not hard to find folks that want the fresh eggs or you can always scramble the eggs up and feed them back to the chickens.

    Welcome to BYC! You have come to the coolest place on the internet for chicken knowledge.

    I started with chickens last summer and the people of BYC have been great. This year I have tried hatching and buying chicks for even more chickeny joy. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.

    You can scramble the eggs (and shells) and give them to the chickens . They won't mind a bit.
