So we got our chickens about a month ago, and I have to say it has been such a rewarding experience. After they got used to their new home, we let them out to free range which has made them so happy. They are on an all organic feed, and I must say the 9 of them are eating me out of house and home to the tune of about 24 lbs a month of food, but they are laying so well. I am averaging 5 eggs a day which is really great since some are still really young and not quite laying yet. Also, it has been so cold that everyone we know is talking about how they aren't getting but a couple of eggs a week. However, our chickens are still laying at least 4 a day and usually five. I love talking to them as I feed them every morning and I honestly believe they love their life here! /I would recommend chickens to anyone as long as you plan to free range them or put them in a fenced in yard they can run around freely.
