I have 21 hens, no roos, three cats and one husband who loves his girls as much as I do. This is our first venture into the world of chickens and we love it. Our girls are very tame, love to be held and do tricks for treats. All are laying and we do get days of 21 eggs !! I have 10 New Hamps, 5 Americanas and 6 Golden Comets. One is being broody right now and she'll be getting taken care of tomorrow...wish me luck !!
