Hello. I am a new poster. I have had chickens off and on for over 30 years. My favorite breeds are Rhode Island Reds, Partridge Rocks, Barred Rocks and Brown Leghorns. I don't eat them, not that I can't dress a bird, but I married a city girl who is just now getting used to fresh eggs! I keep them because its part of my heritage and I like the birds and the eggs. I usually keep 10 to 12 hens. Right now I have 10 hens (old) and over 60 pullets of different breeds.
