Hi there! I am Gramma and inherited the Easter chicks as they became to big for the house. ; ) I must say that this was planned and not done with selfish disregard to the chickens. My son built a wonderful hen house for our three and so far so good! Could use all the good advice I can get for a 1st time owner. These will be pet chickens and NOT for dinner. Eggs if we are lucky. Thanks!
