My husband and I live in central Phoenix, Arizona. We are very active in animal rescue specializing in special needs dogs and kitties. We currently buy our eggs from another rescue person who does not eat her pets. We would like to have four chickens for eggs and pets. They would never be killled for food or because they stopped laying. Can anyone point us in what our next step should be? Where we might acquire four chicks that would get along and give us eggs as a bonus? Thank you in advance for any help you can give us?
