getting 4 chickens today ( im new to this)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am getting 4 orptigntons today. I could use any advise that anyone has. I am new to this, and want to make sure the chickens are happy and healthy. What are good treats for them?

black oil sunflower seeds any kitchen scraps, corn, and remember treats shouldn't exceed 10% of their daily diet.

I'm guessing you have Buff Opringtons,  they are a very nice breed. I think you will be very happy with them.
