    Hello all, My wife decided she wanted laying hens. We bought 6 yesterday and a rooster. I found this site looking for info on dealing with them since i have never messed with chickens before. So any suggestions would be great. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! You will love this site. I suggest using this site's search to find out answers to any specific questions. You can find the answer to almost anything! For now, a safe roomy pen (dogs & raccoons can tear through some chicken wire with ease & hawks are a problem if your run isn't covered), fresh water and feed for their age group. Heat can be a serious problem for chickens. If it's hot for you it can be deadly for them. Do a search on how to keep them cool. It will depend on your humidity as to the proper solution. Enjoy your flock! [​IMG]
