    I'm new here, but i've been lurking for around a week on this forum. I just got two 6 month old rhode island reds for my birthday a week ago, after begging for them for around 2-3 years. So i am 100% inexperienced in raising chickens. I love my new chickens to death! If i could i would move my bed into there, but sadly there is not enough room for me and my chickens. I'm hoping to get 2 more chickens soon.

    You can check your local feed stores as they usually sell adult chickens and baby chicks

    Hi, welcome! Have a look around the forum, I'm pretty sure I saw info on where to get chickens... I've got 80 chickens already, with two hens sitting on eggs, 13 and 12 AND an incubator full... watch out, this is addictive!

    How much room do you have for chickens? I only ask because it's a safe bet that you're not going to only have 4... [​IMG]
