Hi everybody! My name is Amber and I live outside of Boise, Idaho with my husband Don and our almost 6 month old Connor. My husband is outside finishing our coop as I type this and we will be picking up our pullets around 6pm MT. We are getting 2 Golden Sex-Link and 1 Rhode Island Red. We are very new to this although I have an experienced family member in NY willing to answer any questions we have. Our purpose for getting some chickens is for egg laying. One day we may work up to raising as a food supply as well, but that is not anytime in the near future and the ability may not be in my heart at all.
I have a simple question that I can't really find the answer to anywhere..maybe because it is common sense but I'm not sure. With our baby, I am just curious how old your children have to be to interact safely with the birds? Also, can we take him with us to go pick them up in the same car or should my husband just go by himself?
I will be posting pictures of our coop and birds on here once I browse and get acquainted to the website a little better.
I'd love to hear some feedback on the baby and the pullets in this thread though if you have any. Thanks for reading
