So I have to go back some 45 years when I raised my first chicken. It was more like 100 meat birds trying to save a buck at the dinner table. I turn a young 70 this week and thought I would buy myself a birthday present of dozen pullets. 6 leghorn, 3 Rhode Island reds and 3 golden star. Probably more than I need but figured on attrition. Looking forward to raising and caring for them and of course using the eggs. I am in the planning stages of the chicken coop and have plenty of room. Also have some critters that would just love to make them a meal so can’t really let them be free without me being around.
