Hi everybody. I'm a city-bred chicken novice at age 72 and have lots of questions and am looking for guidance. My chicks arrived from TX on May 18. I ordered Buckeye because it's an endangered breed and I thought "why not?" My chicken experience has been filled with fun and frought with puzzlement. They are now about 3-1/2 months old (and pretty big) and have the free range of my yard and two of my neighbors' yards. I started with 25 and lost three that tried to run over passing vehicles (I have to educate the neighbors to dodge chickens). I fenced my yard but they find their way around, under and over (sometimes they take their cue from the local resident groundhog(s).
