    Good Morning! I have been wanting to get my own chickens for a couple of reasons: I have 2 young children and I know it will be a great learning experience and 2: for the fresh eggs. So, we recently (2 months ago) decided to start our own flock. I have come to this website for general care information and ideas for making their stay at our home better :). Thanks!
