Our chickens provide us with farm-fresh eggs and entertainment, someday we hope to have chicks. I have a love for all of our chickens, probably more than most. We strive to sell enough eggs to pay for the food for our chickens to help them be more self-sufficient. We allow our chickens to free-range most days, but have trouble with hawks. The hawks around us are large and have swooped full-grown chickens into the abyss. Our 4 year old names most of our chickens, so do not be alarmed by any of the names. Haha. He names the chickens based on his current love at the time. We have birds named after Star Wars, music he likes, food he likes, and whatever else pops into his young mind. I find pure enjoyment out of his naming of birds and deemed him The Chicken Namer. He takes his job seriously.
I have written a few posts about how to keep chickens and different trouble-shooting guides.
