Are you out of ideas on what to buyer your sweetheart for Christmas? Consider the gift that keeps on giving, Chickens!!! Do away with those dull white thin shelled eggs from the store. The Rhode Island Red yields 250 eggs a year with a proper diet. One baby chicken only costs as much as one dozen organic free range eggs. Yet over the next two years will give you hundreds of eggs. Peepers (baby chics) make great stocking stuffers.
