    Hi, All ~ I am new to chicken-keeping; have 26 month-old Tweens & struggling to get the coop finished. Love my girls & find visiting them before & after work and before their "bedtime" remarkably calming :) 6 Barred Plymouth Rocks, 5 Golden-Laced Wyandottes, 5 Welsummers, 5 Black Australorpes, & 5 Americaunas (probably Easter Eggers). So cute. Started this new hobby as a way to vote against inhumane factory farms & to have healthier eggs. Anyone else in the Western PA area?

    Hello and :welcome

    I like your thinking! We haven't eaten store bought cage eggs since we got our hens. The fresh eggs are fantastic.
    Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have, and enjoy the site. :D
