I never wanted chickens in the first place. My flock is a rescue flock that some folks simply dropped off. Well, of course, now I'm hooked. No surprise there. But housing presented a problem since the farm is already dedicated to horses and goats.
My does live in the stripping room of our old tobacco barn (a 16x24 cinder block space) I have 9 does and a varied number of kids living in there at any given time. I want to add 2 roosting bars and 4 laying boxes. (I have 4 that double a kiddie cubbie holes). Do you think I could add 14 chickens to the mix?
