Hello, My husband Scott and I (Chris) thought that raising chickens for eggs would be fun to do with our two kids. Plus I am hoping that I will be able to eat fresh eggs as I can not eat the ones in stores. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one cause I miss eating eggs. We also plan on raising Broilers after we get the hang of the laying chickens that we are getting. I am super excited to get the chicks and start raising them with the family. It should be a fun adventure and a good learning environment for the kids. I have already learned so much from this site and look forward to sharing our adventures.
