Hi, new to the forum. Just finished my hen house and outdoor run last week..4x5 hen house. 7x10 run. 2 nesting boxes. Brought home 5 - 2 month old australorp crosses today. They were all scratching and eating within an hour. Had to put them to bed in the hen house at 9 pm. I know I will be asking advice of everybody very soon. Glad to be here.
