    ok first off I have to tell you that I hate you all because I am now addicted and my hubby is cool with it... that makes it WORSE!!!!! you are all enablers!!!!!

    I just got back from picking up 2 new girls both pullets.... one just started laying (Is she still called a pullet) she is a cuckoo maran easter egger cross. the other is a easter egger.

    I decided that the easter egger will be named "Bunny" I will let my kids help name the other one. now I have 5 chickens total.

    I asked my hubby to section of a area of my 12x12 barn for the chickens and he said ok when are we gonna do this? I said some time in the next month. he said ok! (this is BAD!!!! he wants something-I cant figure out why he is being so cool with this new fettish?) So any way I have 5 chickens do you all think that a 12 foot by 3 foot area is anuff for them? I wont ever have more than 10 chickens(EVER:rolleyes:). this area will be 13 feet high. and I will build a nice roost area and have plenty of nest boxes for them. but for the 5 chicks is that enuff area?

    OH I am so excited to have my girls..

    Are you planing on letting them outside at all or keeping them in there area 24/7 ??

    For 5 chickens you really only need a few nest boxes !!

    You gotta know that all the moderators are going to rush in here with their ban sticks pulled and their fingers on the trigger.
