Hello Poultry Lovers, I was raised on a chicken/egg ranch and love having chickens around. I now live in Oregon and am waiting for my new flock of chicks. I usually have 4 - 6 chickens. If you wonder what you can do if you get a rooster in your flock, the local feed and seed store takes them and puts a "free rooster" sign out. It always surprises me when the sign is only up for a day or two.
