IMG_6959Fun Facts:  It’s been about three years of raising chickens. We’ve had many varieties over the years including Barred Rock, Easter Egger, Silver Laced and White Wyandotte, Buff Orpington, Rhode Island Reds and several mixed breeds. We currently have six hens (Rhode Island Reds, Orpingtons and Wyandottes). We’ve raised a few roosters long enough for the neighbors to complain. We even had one chick hatch! Our kids love to be part of it all when the chicks are young. Very little goes to waste here. We use wood mulch as bedding that we compost and use in our garden every year. We also feed the chickens all of our kitchen scraps.
