Southwest Buckeye here, near Greenville. Love living here! Pretty cool to see other Ohioans on here
We have 5 girls and 1 evil and mean roo. Plenty enough for me, I'm not fond of having to get up extra early so I have time to let them out and feed them before work. And now they have stopped laying because of a hard molt this year. Our neighbors have 8 chickens and are giving away eggs right and left, lol. I constantly try to think of coop improvements to have less work to do in the morning, my best idea was to have a PDZ filled poop board under the roost. I scoop it every morning, and since it keeps the coop clean, I only have to clean out the coop once a year.We are in point place. Now that I have a chicken addiction, I wish we were in the country. Lol I would love to have more than 6. Right now we only have 4. I really thought about trying to hatch our own this spring. I think it would be a great experience for my kids!
I'd also love to know if anyone in OH has breeder quality (not hatchery stock). I'm doing a "scientific study" involving trying out aaaallllllll the chicken breeds. For science. Not because I'm addicted. Really I can stop any time I want to ...LOL NO... I just figured buckeye people might be the ones to contact for fertile buckeye chicken eggs!
