    Raising Chicks

    I'll experiment with free ranging when I get them.

    Raising Chicks

    Oh. Do I have to let them free range or no? Is it essential?

    Raising Chicks

    I am just going to free range them for 30 mins each day. What time of the day do they lay?

    Raising Chicks

    I am writing one so that I can convince my parents to get chickens. I don't have a title yet. Should I let them free range daily? For how long?

    So even numbers are better? I'll take some exact measurements or the areas I could work with tomorrow.

    Ok. Do you have experience with Amber Stars? Would 3 Amber Stars and 3 Buff Orpingtons work? Chickens need to be in even numbers correct?

    Raising Chicks

    Ok. Maybe I'll do 4 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Amber Stars, and 2 Silkies.

    Raising Chicks

    Do silkies really have that type of personality?

    Raising Chicks

    How long does it take to establish? After it's established, do they still attack each other?

    Raising Chicks

    So would the silkies just get bullied and bullied and bullied?

    Raising Chicks

    Ok. Would Buff Orpingtons and Amber Stars be mean to other chickens?

    Are silkies good layers? How many days a year do they lay?

    Raising Chicks

    Ok. I think I'm allowed a rooster where I live. At what age do they start crowing? I feel like that is a bit of a last resort because I would feel bad putting a collar on him... Thanks for all the help everyone! I'm probably going to order from Murrays because I can get 7 instead of from TSC...

    Raising Chicks

    Will both TCS and Murry's send me extras? I could see if I could give the roosters away. Otherwise, I would have to cull them :( I could probably ask the site to please not send me any extras...

    Maybe 40 sq ft with an 80 sq ft run? I have plenty of space and they will be in the run all day long. How much would one of those cost?

    Raising Chicks

    I'm looking for local hatcheries... I don't currently have a timeline because I haven't written my essay or even talked to my parents about getting them. In total, how much would it cost to build a 50 sq ft coop and a 100 sq ft run? I will make sure to read everything. How much is shipping?
