    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.

    Im retired Vet , we have a Bluenose pit bull. 3 cats and Marty a green cheeked parrot . I just opened this account for my wife so we can ask questions and learn . We use organic feed and herbs supplemented by treats and leftovers.. The hens are more like pets and are super well treated .
    Since we are renting the chickens its going to be hard on the wife to give them up . They get so excited when the see her/us .

    If you would like to find out what breeds of chickens you have, you can post photos here to get some help:
    What Breed Or Gender is This?

    If you're enjoying the birds, can you keep them (sort of rent with the option to buy)?
