My Family With Chickens

My Family With Chickens

My wife and I have seven children ranging from 2 years old all the way up to 15 years years old.

We built our own chicken coop on a limited budget, by using and following the guidelines from this website as closely as possible.

We bought a total of 10 chickens (between 6 weeks and 18 weeks old) and intend to use them for laying eggs as well as keeping them as pets.

When we started it, all of the kids were excited (as they are whenever you first get pets), but we fully expected it would quickly become more of a chore than fun.

Boy, were we ever wrong..... to this day all the kids enjoy picking up and holding the chickens, sharing them with their friends and taking care of them.

This experience of raising chickens has been far better than I ever could of imagined.

This morning I went out to feed and water them and one of the chickens (we named her Rose)was making some noise "like pay attention to me" as I looked closer I saw she had laid her first egg, VERY COOL!!

We have encouraged a lot of our friends to get them as well as they are not only fun but very easy to take care of.
