Hooray we got our chicken today. But we are completely new and have a few questions.... VERY EXCITED!! Apparently they should start laying in two weeks or so. We got three to start. A BlueBell, Sussex Line & Goldline. Below is a picture: We would be really grateful if you can help us. 1. The poultry center told us that we had to section off the nesting boxes to begin with. Does anyone know how long we should do this for? 2. We were told to mix half an egg cup of grit in with their feed. What they didn't tell is was whether we fill the feeding thing to the top with the grit in or just a few scoops for the day with that amount of grit in? They were shy to come out at first but with a little persuasion they came out and seem to be very happy. Thanks for all your help.
