I moved here a couple of years ago and there just happened to be a hen house. Never having kept chickens before I decided to dive in head first. Got five rescue hens to get the egg production on the go and bought a couple of cheapie incubators and a clatter of mixed hatching eggs. One year on from the rescue hens arrival, I have around 40 cross bred chickens with far too many cockerels that will eventually end up in the pot once they've enjoyed a bit of a decent life.
