    Hey guys, as you've probably guessed, my names Dave. I thought I'd join this after my father announced the other day that he's bought some chickens because 'I've always wanted some' So no thought to it, but I'm already developing a bit of an obsession with them to be honest!

    Thanks! Much appreciated, there was a quick question actually. Obviously because he bought them pretty much 'just because' we don't have a coop or anything. We're going to be converting our garden shed over the course of the next week, so at the minute we're keeping them in the garage, It's not ideal I know, but I've made sure they have plenty of feed, warm bedding etc so they aren't suffering, they seem comfortable enough. I'd wager my whole street would know if they weren't happy.

    But I digress, my question was: Are they ok in there for now? I'm keeping it clean and like I said they have plenty of food and water, room to roam and stuff. It's not perfect but it IS strictly temporary

    Thanks :)

    I think that they'll be fine there temporarily. As long as they are acting happy and eating well, they're fine.

    Ah brilliant, that's a load off of my mind, spent most of the night up worried and listening out for any distress, but they seem happy and comfy so it's all good.

    [​IMG] chickens aren't too picky as long as they have something to eat, drink and a dry place to sleep. The Learning Center is full of good stuff to read, and will probably answer questions that haven't even occurred to you yet.
