    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Fresh eggs are just delicious, far better than store bought ones. It's like finding treasure in the nest boxes when you collect!! Be sure to check out the learning centre link, lots of fab articles that will really help you get started on your new chicken adventures.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    Hi there. We just adopted ours two days ago. We are also looking for fresh eggs, meat when they are done laying and teaching our children how to raise healthy food sources. Our boys are 9 & 10 and are thrilled to do this. We'll see how they handle eating their chickens in a couple years. [​IMG] Our babes are only 12 days old so we have a few months before we'll see any eggs.
