Hello, My family and I have been thinking about getting chickens for the past few years now and we are excited to say that we just placed our first order! We are getting 12 unsexed chicks so probably half of them will be roosters. We learned that most people recommend not getting roosters but the person that we are buying from is glad to take them back if we decide to not keep them. The breeds are Ameraucanas, Easter Eggers, and Olive Eggers. They will be arriving around March 14th and will be a day or 2 old. We live right on the river so we have lots of wildlife around. We have done lots of research on how to take care of them but here are some questions that we have specific to our situation: 1) Will an old large dog crate work as a brooder? 2) What should we feed them(we are an all organic family)? 3) Are those breeds friendly? How many eggs do they lay per day? 4) Should we keep a rooster(we are planning to get more chicks in the future)? 5) How big should our coop be? 6) Do you recommend a mobile coop? 7) Should we make our coop? If not, which are the best companies to buy from(we are from New Hampshire)? 8) What do you recommend for us to do in the winter with the cold? 9) Where is the best place to put the brooder? 10) What wattage and temperature do you recommend for the light on the brooder? Sorry i know this is a lot we just want to provide the best care for our baby chicks!
