Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Nov 18, 2015
I have Amrock chickens for farm use such as laying eggs. Amrocks are easy to care for if they are kept in a coop suitable for the breed and for the number you wish to keep. They lay best in a quiet setting and prefer to have a low number of rooters to hens. Roosters are not needed for egg production, only for reproduction purposes. I choose to keep 1 rooster per dozen hens for the hens safety. I recommend chickens to anyone looking to have farm fresh eggs, and anyone who has roughly 20 minutes to spare a day for care.
