Well, not definitly but hopefully! We would need a brooder, but we can't afford much more than a cardboard box, if we're going to build a coop also. Any advice??? We may be getting some from my little brother's school, they do a chicken embryology unit and they raise the yellow fluffy ones, I'm not all that farmiliar with the different breeds, but we may be getting 2 from there and maybe a mix of other chicks.. Just wondering if we could put them together right away? and also, we live in a neighborhood, where our back is to about 30 ft back of woods and then there are neighbors with other chickens , i don't know if we should let our chickens free range because they might go home with the other chickens, or maybe get in fights with them, I'm really worried about this, any advice?
