My brother was attacked by ours as kids and he still has scars.

Ok, if you crush the egg shells and feed it back to the chickens in their feed, it will strengthen the shells on the eggs they lay, it's just recycling the calcium back into their systems.
Good luck, chickens are great! I want some, but A) don't have the time just yet and B) the critters up here worry me, it's hard to let them free range when an eagle or hawk will take off with one for dinner.edit on 8-4-2013 by woodsmom because: read the thread and had more to offer
I'd make the run much bigger with more ramps. That run seems awfully small. Also, if it gets hot where you are, think about buying a kids water mister to hang up in the run.
