Hey everyone, I am a newbie at backyard chickens. For my birthday yesterday my hubby built me a little coop and got me two 16 week Partridge Orpingtons. I'm in love already!! Their names are Virginia & EstherMy question for today is " are ants a big problem for my chickens?" I live in Southern California and it's still really hot here. The ants want the water. Thanks!! Super excited to be on here!
