    Hi, welcome to the chicken world. They definitely are wonderful creatures with some spunky personalities :) What kind of chickens do you have? Since you just got them, make sure you give them a few day's to get adjusted, most don't immediately lay, they take time to warm up to new surroundings. Will they be free range or pinned?
