Well I am still gathering information before purchasing my first chickens in a couple of months, (I'm shooting for March) . I have a few more questions, I've ordered 5 regular sized cochins at the feed store. Is it better to buy baby chicks or half grown chickens? Is two nesting boxes enough for 5 hens? How do you tame the chickens to be handled. I have a 3.5 year old who is desperate to pet the chickens as soon as we get them! Thanks!
