Raising chickens for eggs

This summer we started with six chicks and have been raising them for fresh eggs.  The chickens are full grown now and they are laying eggs for us.  During the winter chickens need supplemental daylight hours to keep producing eggs.  They also need some heat if it is below freezing.  I think if anyone is truly interested in raising their own chickens they should read, Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens by Gail Damerow.  This book answers everything you would ever want to know about chickens.
