My wife and I always wanted a small flock of chickens. I started this back in April and it took me about 6 weeks working in the afternoons and weekends. I had no idea how much work this was going to be when I started, but when it was finally completed, i can tell you it was well worth it. We have 15 hens, two roosters and three guineas. Getting between 6 and 10 eggs everyday (can’t eat em fast enough so we’ve started giving them to our neighbors).
This a cool project to do if your neighbors don’t mind hearing a rooster (or two) crow every morning. Plus you get the added benefit of great fertilizer from the chicken litter.
I will gladly help in any way I can if you decide to take this project on. :-)
