    Chicks outgrowing brooder, Can they go outside?

    I actually Am not sure about the laws. He has asked us if his roosters are bothering us and they weren’t so we said no. But now it is an issue. He said he can’t even catch them bc he thinks he has too many. We have fencing but it’s like 4 foot tall cheap farm fencing.

    No she is not laying eggs. I can’t imagine she is in a super healthy state. I’m hoping maybe that will change eventually but I’m not going to get my hopes up. I’d like to just get her happy and healthy!

    Thank you so much for this wealth of info!! I definitely plant to burn this coup when we build the new digs! I am so relieved that I do have the option of giving her some company because she seems so lonely! This coup is a mess and I can’t even identify what is on the floor of it. It’s thick and...

    Hi! We just bought a house on several acres and planned to do a coup and chickens. The woman who owned the home before had a coup and 1 lonely chicken (the others were picked off by predators). I planned to learn as I went but I got thrown in to the middle of it with an existing coup and chicken...
