Hey Guys, I need some help. I am trying to price out my starting costs for having chickens. I hope to have 7 chickens total (6 layers and a rooster). I think a 11ft by 4 ft coop (run included in that measurement) would work for this amount, right (at 4 sq feet per chicken) or could I go smaller? I am trying to get a list of everything I would need as if I was buying it all (I know some I might be able to make). Are there any items that you have now but didn't know about when you started? Anything you see missing from my start-up list? Also, Do i need grit if I have sand in their run? Here is what I have so far, please help if I leave anything out: 2 Good books on Chicken Raising Chicken Brooder (Heat lamp, chick waterer, chick feeder) Chicken Coop and Run Nesting Boxes Roosts (If I need more than 2) Oyster Shell DE Sand (For Run) Pine Shavings (For Coop) Chicken Feeder Chicken Waterer Chicken Starter/Crumble Feed Chicken Scratch Thanks!
