Hello! I've had chickens for several years. Have almost 50 now, mixed types, along with 12 peacocks and 8 guineas. I love my birds and spoil them rotten. 1/4 of my chickens are now old and retired -just enjoying life. 1/2 are producing eggs for us to eat and sell, and the remainder are juveniles or chicks. They all live on my alpaca farm, and range free, except at night.
