Good luck. Your hens will create a friendly atmosphere around the yard. The eggs will come in handy and the feathers will be a great addition to the kids craft days. They can go on cards, decorated boxes (oatmeal boxes, cocoa box), colages ect..........

I am reporting you immediately to the SPCA!

Making them drink from a poultry roaster is inhuman psychological torture!:D:

Congrats on the birds,...have they started laying yet?:)

I think they will create a friendly atmosphere too. I told my wife that when we bringing them home and she laughed. She'll see though. I didn't even think about using feathers for anything...good idea! Chickens are great....so many uses, and just feels nice being around them.

LOL!
I didn't even think about that. That used to be the dog's dinner bowl. I had to find something to put water in until I get them something else. That is too funny, though!
Yes, they have started laying. I just got them today, so I don't know when they will start laying in their new home. I have to finish their coop and that will probably help.

They have all ready laid 3 eggs. That's pretty good considering the amount of time I have had them.
I made nesting areas for them.
