First time posting, long time looker. I had Banties several years ago, just for a hobby. I raised Silver Duckwings and would just give away breeding pairs to just about anyone that asked for them, including a few for 4-H projects. Well, I'm remodeling the hen house and just about done. I've partitioned off an area of 8'x8' in my 16'x16' kennel building and it has an outside covered run that is 8'x16'. Several family members want fresh eggs, so I'm looking at some Isa Brown's that are 6 mo. old and started laying last month. Considering maybe a dozen at this time. I just dread the cold winter!
