Hello!!! My "name" is Kristi(I use the name Kristi as an online name)!!! I've been doing lots of research and I would really like to get chickens!!! I would get them for pets and eggs. I may or may not be moving. At the house I currently live at there are A LOT of plants. I'm not really sure what all of them are... My landlord planted them. Would it still be safe to have chickens at my current home??? At the place where I may or may not move into there is a crabby neighbor that might not like the idea of chickens... How would I convince her that they would be not a problem at all??? Also, the landlord that I have may or may not go for the idea of having chickens. How do I let the landlord and the neighbors know that chickens wouldn't be a problem at all??? I already know which coop and brooder I would have and make. What is the best chick starter feed I can get??? Can I feed chicks "human" food right away??? How much feed and human food do I give adult chickens a day??? I live in a place where it gets very cold in the winter. What kind of chickens should I get??? Also, how do I keep them warm if I can't get electricity in the coop??? Should I insulate the coop??? What is the best adult chicken feed I can get??? When are the chickens adults??? How do I tell if they are male or female??? Should I get one type of chicken or several??? Should I get a book on chickens??? If so, which book??? Thank you so much!!! I will probably have more questions later... Lol!!! I have copy and pasted this in a couple other areas. I would love several people's thoughts and opinions. I'm very excited to be here and please answer my questions!!! Thank you so much!!!
