    Ew to the chicken craze. Brought home 6 chicks and raised them to full egg laying maturity. Been a great experience so far. I have 2 Road Island Reds and 4 Hybrids...possible Gold Star. As they grew, we discovered one rooster out of the bunch...because like clock work, he crowed :) My reasoning behind getting chicks vs pullets was because I have two dogs. This helped both the chicks and dogs get accustomed to one another. About a month ago they started producing an egg a day each...this means 35 eggs a week..every week. One other key point is the fact that I have not paid for pest control since my chicks moved into the backyard. Love that!
