Hi. Total newbie. I'm thinking about getting my own backyard chickens. Since I'm in northern Ontario, Canada is really cold right. now with frozen ground, i can't build a coop until ground thaws may-June. Questions are: When should i get chicks? How long do chicks live in the brooder?indoor? When do i move them to a coop? Being a backyard chicken virgin should i start with hens? Will i have a better relationship with my girls if im their from chicks? How long until those chicks lay eggs? About Can i get some chicks. and some hens? That's all for now... Millions more floating in my head, I'll save for layer. Thanks all you wonderful backyard chicken lovers.
