    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. Chickens are fairly easy to raise. All they need is good food, fresh water and a place to protect them from predators. Oh and lots of love. :thumbsup

    Hello and :welcome
    Chickens are very hardy creatures, they are surprisingly good at taking care of themselves! If our chickens are let out into the garden to free range, sometimes they don't even need feed for the entire day, they will eat insects, and veggies from the garden. (And don't want to eat their boring food after all that :lol:)
    Water, shelter, somewhere to lay, yep I think that's it!
    Enjoy the site. :D
