We live in Tustin, MI and are raising our first chickens.. We got 8 hens because the lady at the feed store said we didn't need a rooster. Some people with chickens said we should have one. Anyone know why we should or shouldn't have one? A friend of mine has three and offered us one. We finished the coop today and the chickens love it. This seems to be a great community and I am looking forward to "meeting" you all!
