We finally moved to the country after six years in a townhouse where chickens were not allowed, and we are waiting on our first chicks to arrive later this spring! We will have 25: 5 Scots Dumpys and 20 Orpingtons (an assortment). I've been reading for almost a year and now I'm ready to jump in. We just need to get building! Any tips on raising 25 chickens on a budget? Most of the tips I've seen seem more helpful for smaller flocks. Also, any guesses on how many chicks I can expect to lose?
