We just bought a small vacation home in north central Arkansas and thought about buying a couple hens to get eggs. We would be in the house seasonally and would give the hens to a farm or youth group when we left. Does this sound like a good or viable idea? We are both city/suburban folks and have had no experience with poultry at all. Well, once when I was very small, I got to feed chickens my aunt kept in Tennessee, but that's it. Not much of a reference, huh.
