Hello and Help!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I just got 6 chicks the week of May4th.  I am learning as I go.  I live in upstate New York and have so many questions and concerns:  When can I put them outside?  What should I feed them?  How should I safeguard my coop against predators:  We have them all, hawks, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats.  I'm a wreck!

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

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

Please check out the coops section  and also  the predators threads to learn what safeguards you can put into place.  With that list of predators, I expect you will want to keep them in a large safe, run - instead of allowing them to free range.  Everything loves to eat chicken   and once they  get lucky, they will keep coming back  until  there are none left, or you Stop them in their tracks.
