The Little House dream? 2 chickens in their own Little House No rosters...too much noise for our Inwood neighborhood... Oh, well...ease and grace and sleep... Reproductive cycle of the chicken: or why you don't need a rooster to make an egg.
We raised our girls on real food, and they loved everything I tried with them except for yogurt (go figure). At six weeks old, I introduced them to commercial grower feed. They didn't like it. While I found that to be somewhat annoying, I was very proud them them for knowing the difference between "real food" and manufactured food-like substances.
