I’m very new at chickens. I’ve wanted to have backyard chickens ever since my grandparents brought me to the tractor supply and I got to see the tiny, chirping puffballs. So after many trips to the farm store and tractor supply I’ve gotten 17 chicks (more than my mom and I expected). I have 4 ISA Browns, 4 Barred Rocks, 1 bantam, 2 Silver Laced Wyandottes, 2 black Australorps, 2 Ameraucanas, and 2 Buff Orpingtons. They are all supposed to be pullets. If not we will still keep the rooster. The youngest being a week and the oldest being 3 weeks. They all live in a spacious brooder and they don’t fight with each other. We have been working on their coop that is located in our shed. We are working on getting electricity in their for the winter so they can lay more eggs and they will have 5 nest boxes eventually. They also have a 13 foot roost and we still are adding another smaller roost for them.
