Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Aug 31, 2014
There isn't a house in my village that doesn't have at least dozen hens and a rooster.
Gallus Gallus Domesticus is a great breed. They like to search for food themselves, enjoy grass, different kinds of seeds, worms, corn... They like to walk around all day and just before sunset they go to the hen house by themselves. You need to make sure they always have enough water and that the hen house is closed at night so that some predator doesn't get them while they sleep. They lay eggs of fine quality every day. As for the meet, it is very tasty and healthy.
I think they are perfect for any household, because they are low maintenance and affordable to keep. In return they give good meat and eggs. They are also colorful and bring a cheerful atmosphere to the backyard with their cackle.
