    We I inherited 4 chicken (hens) 2 roosters and a duck. I am 2 weeks into it. It's a lot of work to start but it has leveled off so far. I have a lot to learn and this forum has helped out a lot so far. I still have a lot to learn and look forward to learning from all the experienced raisers on this forum.
