Hello everyone. I am not real computer literate but I will do my best. I had 6 chicks yesterday but one died last night. Everyone else seems fine. I had them in the brooder which is a 8 foot by 3 foot wooden crate with light and food and water. My coop here in Pell City helped me out on what I needed to get started. Starting my coop tommorrow. Have 6 wood crates same size as brooder and hope I can make the chicks a great home on the edge of a 3/4 acre garden. Never raised anything but dogs so I am reading a ton. Question do I have to have a Rooster. Only plan on eating the eggs not raising chickens at this time. Thanks for any help.
