Hello, Greetings from Indiana. I'm Bill, from TnB. We have had chickens since 2008. We started with a SR of 80 chicks. Built it up to 160. Then reduced it to around 30 just for eggs for the family. We lost the whole flock to 2 predator attacks in our barn the year before T started regular 4H. Now we just raise Bantams in our garage. T loves his birds, and he has already won Poultry Junior Grand Champion, had a Reserve Grand Champion Pullet, and a Grand Champion Hen in 5 years of 4H. We have been very Blessed.
