    These are the first chickens I have ever owned. They are adult chickens. Is it alright if the only thing I feed them is that Purina layena feed? And should I put anything else in there for them to eat? Also does anyone have any ideas how i supply them with water, do I just put a bowl of water in there with them. Any help will be wonderful...

    Are you planning on free ranging your 'chooks? You can buy chicken/poultry waterers/feeders at just about any feed store. If you have a TSC ( Tractor's Supply Co. ) they should have everything you need. You can give your chickens treats, check the treat chart. [​IMG] How old are your chickies?

    And yes I plan on free ranging them. The only reason I havent yet, the wife is scared they will run off, and maybe I worry about that to...

    If you post pictures I bet I can help you out on ages. [​IMG]

    It depends how old they are..if they're around a month old or so then I bet they can free range..if they've been locked in their coop for a few weeks/days. [​IMG]
