Hi I am getting chickens in January for eggs and pets. I have been on here for 5 or 6 months and love it! We are getting 6 hens no roosters. We are getting them young (1 or 2 days old) and are super happy!I would love some more info on their early life but take any on anything that has to do with chicks/chickens. We are building our coop (a 5x5 25 square feet we go by the 4 square feet per chicken in the coop and will have a little space left over) and will have a run of 5x10 plus the under the coop is part of the run so 75 square feet so over 12 feet per chicken in the run. Love any advice! Thanks in advance!
