Alright guys you want a chicken, they ain`t no walk in the park... they stink n pooop alot.... but if you have a closed in area like a tank they will die from the amonia of their poop. lol funny ey? you need something that can always circulate. You must have acces to sum 1 who can check on them 5 times a day. you all neeed starter feed for chickens, you can use bowls for there water or plates but chances are they wil crap in it. same with for food use a waterer and a feeder. any questions just ask mr.
