Our new chickens

20141221-004457.jpg

New to our family 7 hens and 2 roosters. Now our lonely hen has company.

We keep chickens for the manure. The eggs are just bonus but what a bonus!

Some people are surprised to learn that you don’t have to have a rooster to get eggs from chickens but its true. The majority of eggs would never hatch as we haven’t had a rooster in almost 10 years, since we first started keeping chickens.
