I am getting 14 chicks the first week of march. This is our first time owning chickens I've been reading and looking at videos online trying to learn about chickens. I got 13 assorted brown egg layers and 1 rhode island red rooster. I'm very excited to be raising them and so our my 3 kids. My husband has started building our coop and I'm going to start getting the brooder ready just have to figure out what I want to build it out of. I guess my question is, is can you give me any advice that will help me out being a first timer?
