Hello everyone! I've stalked this forum for a while, and decided that since I will have my babies soon, I should join. I've been a dog, lizard, fish, and horse mom for some time, but these are my first chickens. I'll be getting eight to ten Cream Legbar pullets on Sunday, and I am so excited! This is a picture of my brooder. I don't have the light, feeder or waterer set up yet because those are stashed at my boyfriend's place. It's in the garage and it's been getting fairly warm here lately, so I was considering leaving the door open during the day? I haven't noticed any dogs or predators roaming. Also, does anyone have advice on bonding with chicks? I really am hoping to have friendly, interactive chickens but I don't want to push the issue and stress anyone.
