I'm so excited that we are purchasing a house where we can finally have CHICKENS!!! YAY! I need some advise.
We are moving to many acres of wooded land. The house sits at the top of a hill that already has a coop with 24 boxes. I will start small with 4 but I wonder how many I could have. I am also concerned about predators. Our house and the coop is surrounded by woods. I would like to let the chickens roam free during the day. Do you think that would be safe?
Lastly, for anyone in southern WI; where do you get your chickens?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
