Hi, I'm new to the group. While I helped raise chickens when I was a kid, I know I have forgotten a lot. Also, I'm in the greater Phoenix, AZ area and it is a lot different from raising them in Montana! I'd love to get pointers on how to raise chicks in an area that gets this hot. Our chicks will be free range on a nearly acre lot. My wonderful neighbor is giving us their coop when they move so that part is covered. We will have the fence up soon and I would like to learn about what else we should get ready before we get chicks. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
