OK we will see how this will turn out not sure if anyone will reply or want to join in but we will give it a try.. First I wanna share how I got my 4 10-12 week old chickens.. Me and Hubby were out of town last Saterday and most of Sunday. When we got home my mother in-law comes to us and says " look what we got" as she takes out her cell phone and shows us pictures. Turns out it was thease 4 chickens.. That were pecking on our front door on Saterday morning.So me and hubby were kind of suprised because we had just brought home 2 Dwarf rabbits that my son had and so we laughed and sais "well we'll give them a few days and if they hang around we'll keep them. Needless to say they didnt go anywhere. Before we knew if they were male or female we went out and bought a full grown roo. We started to look around for coops for them and they turned out to be more expensive then we thought so we went and bought some supplies to make one figuring it would be cheaper in all actuality it would just been easier to buy one. But being that we had no idea what we were getting into we built one. As some would say around on here not a great one but we had to do what we could. They have been in their coop for this would make 5 days now. I have been going out every day with some bread to try to tame them a little and have been making a little progress with all but one of the 4 chickens. We are feeding them starter food for now cause that is what someone told us at the Tractor Supply store we should feed them.. I think out of the 4 3 of them are hens and 1 of them are roos. The one we think is a roo is not shy at all he is the first to run for the food every morning and the first to run up to me when I come out with bread. They all go nuts over bread.... We have named 2 out of the 5 chickens.. The really shy one's name is Ma'ma and the adult roo is named Poco.. Well I hope I get more ppl that want to share their first experiences raising chickens for the first time..
