Well i'm new at raising hens, since i had roosters only and they where more easier to take care then hens! I live in S.F in the suburbs. Hens are different then rooster because they lay eggs. So since my teenager chicks are getting bigger, they are now living in a giantic plastic tote box. Could that be good enough for their living quarters? Plus how do i set up their nest for them to lay eggs??? What do i need?
