I am very thankful for this board. This is my first journey into the world of chickens. I have been reading most of the posts and information available here. Today, I was at a friends house and told her that I now have 4 chicks. Her husband asked about a rooster. I said that we are not allowed to have a rooster in the city. He then said, "why have chickens then? You won't get eggs without a rooster." I now KNOW that is not true! Now if someone tells me anything I look it up or ask the experts on the list! Thanks for all the help everyone.
