Hello world!

Welcome to my site on backyard chicken keeping. As with many chicken keepers my girls are more for pets than for eggs – which is just as well, as if I work out the setup costs like purchasing them, the  feeders, waterers and the coop itself, eggs are costing about $20 each!

They have only just started laying though, so I am hoping things will improve, but I think it will be years, if ever, before I can say homegrown is cheaper than store bought.

But they are better 🙂
