A friendly neighbor and
Hollywood celebrity Frank Hoyt Taylor offered us a deal where he woud
pay for 20 laying hens in exchange for fresh eggs.
It only took us a minute to
conclude this was a great deal and an awesome way to get to know our
neighbor a little better.
He directed us to someone he
knew that was getting out of the chicken business and was selling young
laying hens for 5 dollars a bird. We didn’t know much about raising
chickens, but once my wife checked out a book from the library we felt
armed with enough information to get started on a poultry adventure
that eventually turned into the blog you are reading right now.
