    Im getting two 3-5 day old bantam chickens one is a barred plymouth rock bantam and one is a welsummer bantam. How can I prepare their coop for them what should I feed them? I had ducks before but this is my first time getting chickens. Also, if they breed, how will they turn out? Thnx

    First things first [​IMG] always good to have a new chicken
    hoarder on board ......


    congratulations on the new acquisitions but I do believe they
    should be in a brooder for at least five weeks and being winter
    but anyway first a chick starter medicated and by week two
    mix it with turkey grow 20% protein till all is gone as it should
    not just go to waste and put Probiotic in the water and there
    should be three packs connected and one pace to one gallon
    of water .... You want your chickens to be healthy right ......
    And a hard boiled egg all mashed up and put just a little
    bit in at a time this is to help them grow big and strong .....

    Chickens with ducks good call should not have any problems
    I have been doing this for years .......
    I hope this has helped you some [​IMG]
