I've been involved with chickens for 3 months now. I picked up 6 ISA brown chics in April from my local tractor supply near Sciota PA.

I builted them a nice 5 x 8 coop, 12 inches raised above the ground so they can go there and stay dry or cool during summer months. 2 roosting bars, and a 7x8x4 wire mesh run. I've predator proved the coop windows with 14 guage pvc coated wire mesh around the window, because I keep both windows open to keep it cool for them. I bought and laid out 3 feet off 14 guage pvc coated wire mesh from the floor and perimeter of the run and coop to keep predators from digging in. I Installed an automatic door which I set to open at 7am and close at 9pm, testing. This setting for now. I'm feeding them grower feed brand DuMor, but I'm looking in making my own feed mix from organic grains etc. however, I'm still in the research stage to learn more. I welcome any great advice escpially about nutrition and health....
