Hey there! Hubby and I just moved to our country home the week before Thanksgiving...a major dream come true for us! We have 2 horses and a donkey so far. I have wanted to have chickens REALLY bad for a long time! I tried so hard to find a way to sneak them into our neighborhood! I am trying to learn as much as I can before I get them and even thought it might be better to let the weather get a little better before starting. We live in SC so I was thinking end of Feb. or first of March. My hubby wants to refurbish and give the chickens a home in the tack room of the stable. People around here say it is ok for the chickens to live near the horses. My question to ya'll is....is this a good idea and is there anyone here who has this kind of arrangement? I know that the chickens run area must be fenced off but are there other things to majorly consider? Thanks in advance I look forward to being here there is sooo much info!
