I've had quite a few chickens in my lifetime. I had most of them when I was a bit younger and used chickens for meat. These particular chickens are appropriate if you're looking for either meat or eggs. They can be a bit unfriendly and unwilling to share their eggs at first but time will change that. Now, my family raises chickens strictly for eggs and it makes it much easier to get close to them.
