    Jususnak, hello

    The thing about raising chickens so far that I have enjoyed the most are collecting the eggs for the bator and now that have all I want to raise as chics, the eating of ones I have raised myself and not the store bought ones.

    bigzio, thanks for the warm welcome.


    I have been reading info on this site for a few weeks now before joining in.

    The raising of my own chickens has been a real treat.

    I was hoping to raise 10-15 chics from the three adults I had bought.

    If all goes as it has so far, I am on pace to have 33 chics to raise.
