  1. So true. I would add and some time roaming the backyard with mine. They are happiest pooping all over my backyard which I then have to hose down when they are all done. I am so excited. Got my first two edible eggs yesterday from my Barred Rocks.

    • Oh yes! My girls love to free range too with supervision of course. We have so many hawks! Just yesterday, I heard the "alarm" and there was a large Red Shouldered Hawk scoping out a chicken dinner! Congratulations on the eggs! For me the excitement of discovering the eggs never wears off 🙂
