Flock Name: Chick Magnets
Sex Links, Americana, Orpington, Australorp… We have 5 hens. We have 4 fertile eggs and one brooding hen. We have no Rooster. We got our fertile eggs from Renfrow Hardware because we wanted to make our brooding girl happy. We will have aprox. 10 chickens in total after hatching and buying a couple road Island red chicks and Americana next week.
Neighborhood: East Providence Estates
I have several acres. I built the coop myself using ideas from friends and research. It is big enough to hold about 10 hens comfortably and then they have about a 20 foot run that is well protected. We also have a fenced in area for them that is about 1/3 acre. In the evenings we let them out to free range anywhere they want. They are our pets. We would never consider eating them! In fact they have their own graveyard ha…. We have had chickens for about 4 years now and they are a part of our life. We sit out there and talk to them and enjoy them. We don’t sell eggs, we have enough for us and our adult children.
