I always wanted chickens so i went and bought four chicks. They are about 14 weeks old now and have been living outdoors for about 10 weeks now. Its hot here in Arizona already! They seem to be doing just fine outside. There is plenty of shade for them to sit in and lots of fresh water. Anyone give advice to me about keeping chickens in the desert southwest please? Also was told the chicks i bought were all female but the other morning one of them woke me up with some whacky outburst at sunrise. Now what?
