Really good hens, Come back twice. I bought 15 from here and can get around 8 eggs per day, enough for my family.

Great place, very knowledgeable and helpful. Bit like crazy dog people but crazy chicken people, in a good way.

Ordered feed online and it arrived the next day. Chickens like this feed much better than pellets or whole grains.
