    Way new don't even have chicks yet or a coop or anything else for that matter. Just a interest/desire to raise some chickens....Live in Wisconsin...Hubby 4 kids 2 out of the nest and 2 still in...have a dog cat and 2 rabbits. I don't think that I will be able to eat my chickens!!! So they will just lay eggs and look pretty!!! Anyone else not eat their "game"? Anyway I have lots of questions.

    Welcome to byc![​IMG] We don't eat the chickens either, but if I were hungry enough those extra roosters would go in the pot!
