I'm am new to this site. I have had chickens in 4 h in high school, long time ago. But I recently purchased a few Barron rocks as chicks. Not they are about 4 months old. I live in the city but I do have a huge yard. No problem there. They live in one of my vegetable gardens. It is a 12 by 12 area 6 ft height fenced in with a tarp of half. They love it. Protect every inche of it as theirs. They have snap peas, tomatoes, potatoes, cumcumbers, grapes at their disposal. Love to play In the hose and run back and forth till you turn it on.. But I joined so I can learn more. Thank you!
