    Welcome Rob. I started my first flock in early April and I LOVE it. Absolutely no regrets. You will have to make some possible life style changes (being home and aware what time it is at dawn and dusk, etc.). The eggs are fantastic but that is just a fringe benefit, the real joy is how local you will be in the food process and how much fun the hens can be and how much personality they have. I would say the rewards are fantastic for anyone willing to take on the responsibility of being a good caretaker of chickens.
