Hello all you chicken lovers! Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Amber. I'm a stay at home wife and mother of 3. We started raising chickens in the spring of 2013 I believe. We now have 1 Blue Wheaten Ameraucana, 2 Wheaten Ameraucanas, 4 Black Birchen Marans, 2 Black Splash Marans, 1 Black Copper Maran, 1 Black Ameraucana, 1 Black Splash Ameraucana, 3 Olive Eggers, 13 Easter Eggers, 17 Silkies, 35 Broilers, 1 Khaki Campbell Duck, 1 Crested Rouen Duck, 1 Blue Swedish Duck, and 1 Black Swedish Duck. (84 birds total atm) We're new to broilers. My husband showed them in high school and now our oldest daughter will be showing them for the first time come January. My favorite thing about raising chickens would have to be that chickens just seem so therapeutic. I could sit and watch them all day. Since we're so new to broilers, any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated. Best feed? Best source of heat in the cold winter months? They're currently kept in the shed (draft free) under a heat lamp. It's done fine so far. It'll be put to the test tonight though when it reaches freezing temps. All recommendations are appreciated.
