    We are first time chicken owners. We bought 11 chicks from Cackel Hatchery. It turned out we got 2 roosters when we thought we had all hens. We are looking for a new home for the roosters because we live in Kirkwood. We have a tractor coop I move every day.

    About this time last year I decided to begin a new hobby:backyard chickens. I acquired a chicken permit from Webster Groves, designed and built a "chicken tractor", and bought 3 baby chicks from Fenton Feed Mill. Except for waking up several mornings this past winter to see if the girls made it through the night the hobby continues to be one of my most satisfying. Hattie, Amber, and Dixey are a wonderful part of my life. Since my backyard chickens require so little of my time now I am entering an aquaponics adventure.
