We started a year ago with three chickens. We purchased a Delaware (Mabel), Jersey Giant (Ethel) and a Barred Rock (Maude) from a chicken breeder at six weeks of age. We chose to start with fully feathered chickens so we could put them directly outside. We chose the Eglu Go chicken coop and run when we started out for it's ease of use in cleaning and it's appealing style.

In our year with chickens we have had no disease or sickness, no loss to predators and a pleasurable owners experience. The flock do have access to our entire yard often as well as their larger lower yard some days as well. I hope this helps some folks who are considering taking the plunge into chicken ownership!
