New to this but love my chickens already - Page 2
- Home in WY
Always feel free to ask questions, we were all new once. x2 on the Learning Center Michael O'Shay gave you the link to. There is an entire section of it devoted to getting started with chickens.
We have the same types of chicken feed as elsewhere - starter, growers, layers mash, but everything is more geared up for commercial activities than keeping them at home - every household in rural Africa has backyard chickens although normally they are left to fend for themselves.
Heres a photo of a few of my 22 birds
The grey one is a "local" chicken - she's the alpha hen. The brown one is a commercial dual purpose bird that eats like a trooper and the two white ones in the background are ones i bred myself - they and their three sisters are just starting to lay. In a week or so, i should be up to around 8-9 eggs per day which is ok.
All the best
