Wait, you seriously rented chickens? Why?

I've always wanted chickens, and I love free range organic eggs.

What is the daily maintenance of the chickens?

In the morning I put their feeder in. After work I collect the eggs and briefly clean their roost. Takes 5 minutes. I let them play and scratch for about 15 minutes or longer if I'm able. They are eager to go back to the run with leftover fruits and veggies. After dark I close they're roost so they are cozy and safe.

Are the chickens noisy?

They make sweet little sounds. Never loud. None of my neighbors know I have them unless I share my eggs. Neighbors love this!

Are the chickens fun to be around? 

I look forward to visiting with them in the afternoons.  My cats enjoy watching them through the storm door.  Makes some great photos.

Did you name your chickens? And what are their names?

They're names are Zeb, Red and Honey.  They each have distinct personalities.  Red is the inquisitive one that likes to be rubbed on her neck.  Zeb and Honey are inseparable.  They travel in twos.  

Would you recommend CityChick to anyone thinking about getting chickens?

I recommend City Chicks as a great way to have a chicken family.    I almost always get an egg a day from each chicken. 
Heath is very responsive to questions and is sure to teach you at least one new thing when he comes out each month.
