We want to raise chickens for their eggs. We are still not convinced meat chickens are for us just yet. We were happy to learn that the ISA Brown chickens are very productive egg layers at approximately 300 eggs per year. They are a cross between the Rhode Island Red and Rhode Island White chickens. They are also very docile, quiet (for a chicken) and friendly.
This video will give you highlights from the first week of bringing home our babies. The baby chicks will stay indoors for approximately 4 more weeks, while they grow and the chicken coop is built. Todd started building the coop last week as well.
Thank you for watching, we will keep adding updates of our chicks and the coop. Please let me know if you have any questions or tips for us!
