Spring chicks

My wife and I decided to get some chicks this spring. In all, we ended up with 13 chicks of various types.

3 - black jersey giants
2 - barred rocks
2 - australorps
4 - rhode island reds
And a couple others I do not remember what type



Its just too much trouble to raise chickens for the meat. Well, unless you do not like factory raised meat that is.

Right now the coop is only 6 feet wide by 4 feet deep.

Easter weekend I am planning on adding a 6 feet wide by 7 foot deep section. When its finished the coop should be about 11 feet long and 6 feet wide.

Yeah, I'm sure he doesn't want to crack open an egg and find a fetus on the frying pan ;;

The chicks are what you call pullets, and they are all supposed to be hens.

I do not want a rooster crowing in the middle of the night. Plus, my wife and I only wanted eggs and no meat birds, so we tried to get good egg producers.
