    My brothers and I have decided to raise some chickens in our yard. We've had a few hens in the past but the 2 we have left are old, we got them as adults and have never raised chicks.. We plan on getting about 25 chicks. We have a coop that we will be expanding. My mom suggested I research how to raise chicks. We're also trying to hatch 3 fertile eggs for a school project.
