Hello to all. Just starting this adventure that is chickens and realizing how much I don’t know. For now we have 8 that are approaching their second week in a brooder box under heat lamp with a dimmer switch. They are eating a grower feed and getting probiotics in their water. Bedding is changed every other day. Past that I have zero idea what I’m doing. Building the run and coop in the next week. Run will be 12x8x7 fully enclosed with wire and coop will be 4x8x6.5. They will be allowed to roam the property during the day time. But due to coyotes, they will be in their run and coop at night. Climate is pretty mild (Southern California) I’m scanning forums and learning but what would you all suggest to a complete newbie. Thanks for whatever advice you have.
