Hi All, New to keeping chickens and new to BYC. We have 15 pullets (or at least we think they're all pullets). They're 13 weeks old. We got them from a well-known hatchery at a couple days old and transitioned them to their permanent coop at 4 weeks. We free-range them when we're home so that we can keep an eye out as we live on a rural acreage. We've only lost one chick, and that was in the first week. The rest seem to be getting fat and sassy. In addition to non-medicated chick feed and scratch, we fed them a fair amount of veggies from our garden this summer. Now that it's getting cooler, we're catching loads of late-season grasshoppers to hand feed. So far this has been great fun. Looking forward to learning loads from the forum.
