I got mine for several reasons. 1. I have a 5 yeald son and a 6 year old daughter. When I was a kid about there age, we had chickens and I loved it. I wanted them to have the same experience. We started with fertile eggs and hatched them ourselves so they could experience it from the start. 2. I love eggs! 3. They are just fun to watch sometimes and I find that having them, taking care of them and watching them free range is really relaxing. There are probably more reasons but that should cover most of them.
I have always wanted chickens. I didn't convince my family until I was so old it is hard work for me now. I love every minute of it! I have seven hens and will be getting a couple more soon. I love watching them interact with each other and me. One of Gods creations, the chicken!
I started researching where my food came from. Chicken factories freaked me out ( so cruel ) . So I decided to raise a few hens for fresh eggs. Sounds logical right?
That opened to the door to finding this site & the crazy world of chickens lol. I love my girls & there individual personalities.
