I live on a little over an acre and thought it would be nice to have a few chickens for farm fresh eggs. I am just wondering what kind of an impact a few chickens are going to be. I have plenty of room for a hen house and a barn for storage of feed and other items. I also have a wonderful wife who has put up with my ideas (so far) for many years. She loves to have a veggie garden every year and grow her flowers and keeps up with several bird feeders in our back yard. I should also mention, I am not looking to go into the egg business by any means. Just want 3 to 4 hens for some fresh eggs. What am I getting my self into?
