    Last week our friends gave us a dozen fresh laid eggs from their chickens, that has prompted us to get some chickens. We're going to get 4 Plymouth Rock chicks, their a $1.50 each and will start producing in about 6 months. Feed is dirt cheap, about $12 a month when their fully grown, all I have to do is build a coop.

    Cool! Should save on pesticide in the yard if you're using any to start with.

    I really would like chickens. But my wife has a hard no. I just love the coops.

    I even joined a back yard chicken forum. :D

    The best part of keeping chickens is cleaning that coop. Enjoy. [/sarcasm]
