Okay, here's the deal, last year, after months of planning; replacing a dilapitated fence - researching and building a pretty cool coop and run we FINALLY got 6 chickens (yeah!) However, we got chickens that were raised by a great guy who raises chickens on a big chicken like ranch with goats, and other game birds, so needless to say the chickens are pretty wild. They are happy, well adjusted, but looking at the photos of people carrying their gals around like feathered footballs makes me laugh aloud just thinking about it...I digress... We want to buy three chicks this Feb., raise them and introduce them to the flock. I know we need to wait until they are as big, and provide plenty of extra feeders and water, but what I need to know right now is what I need immediately to be sure they are comfortable and survive/thrive while inside here with us? I have read three books, but I always feel more info is better...sorry about the verboseness, but these are my peeps!
