    My friend was thinking of getting chickens and she posted on FB.
    Her other friend gave her this advice!!

    "chickens fly only short distances roosters can be very mean & attack & you have to have at least 1 or no eggs buy the ones with a topknot sort of thing on their head they will give u colored eggs then u don't have to dye them at easter.Ducks&turkeys lay bigger eggs.Hey how bout an ostrich u would only need 1-2 for the whole family/eggs that is"


    After I stopped laughing I gave accurate info on the subject!

    Why, of course you need a rooster to get eggs. I have 7 that I would be glad to give her.[​IMG] [​IMG]
