Our Chickens (and other fowl)
I started with a few hens, eventually bought chicks from a hatchery to raise for meat, then bought an incubator and hatched some of my hens eggs. Now I just let the hens hatch the chicks themselves. There have been many ups and downs raising my own chickens and other assorted fowl) but they are the most rewarding and productive of all the animals. Plus they are fun and entertaining to be around.
