New to Chickens

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently raise quail but have decided to move towards chickens. We live in the city and trying to not go over board with a huge farm in back yard. I have a 6 ft by 3 ft cage for the quail but adding a 5 x 10ft coop that is 6ft high. My 6 EE chicks are 1 week old.

I still need to add the fencing around the coop and roof but I will have it done in a day or so. Please let me know if there is anything you think I need or should know.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Alright :welcome great to have you joining the BYC flock :frow

 

 

 

 

If tour chicks are only a week old they will need some TLC like hearting and a comfortable sleeping area ..

 


Do you see the heat source at the top and a night light and the cage is gig enough for the chicks to get away from the heat if needed ....

 

 

Always have food and clean water available for your chicks :hugs

 

 

 

 

You have several week to get your coop ready for your new EE's .. :woot

 

 

 

 

 

Always wash your hands before and after you handle you chicks so as not to spread any unknown diseases, this is something to remember :)

 

 

 

For good health a hard boiled mashed up and served is great for their health :thumbsup
