We got our chickens, Alhamdolilah! Our frinds brought them over as a gift. I love the rooster! He is so big and beautiful. We had 4 hens, but I think a chicken hawk swooped down and got one. We are down to three. I just love the fresh eggs. they lay about one per day. I think if we got a few more hens, it would be better and I would get more eggs faster. My kids have already checked books out at the library on the chickens. They want to know how to raise and care for them.
