I am very tempted to step foot in our feed store tomorrow a.m. ( Rumor has it, they have RIR chicks arriving ) I have 5 hens right now, live in the suburbs. My neighbors are OK with it right now, but I do have to be careful since they really aren't allowed. Anyway, I have Deleware, BR, SLW, and Austrolorp. I get just enough eggs right now to feed my family and maybe sell a doz. occassionally. I have been getting more requests for eggs and I can't keep up. I'd like to add a couple more hens. RIR are the only ones the store will have available, but I really want to make sure they are right for my situation. Can you all tell me your experience with them. They will NOT free range. Thanks!
