Hi, My name is Jessie. I am very new to having chickens. About a month ago I got a baby duck from a friend of mine.... that where it all started. I loved the duck and it was inside until a couple days ago. I bought my house and the shed in the back used to be a chicken coop back in the day, so I changed it back. I made an extended fence for it and lowered some shelves so that I could make some nesting boxes for chickens... So I got the coop ready and now I have 5 chickens. I went and got them today. I got 3 from one guy and 2 from another person on craigslist. Only 2 are laying right now. Within a month all of them should be laying. I am learning about different breeds and anything I can find out about chickens. I am very happy with their personalities...and my duck has already imprinted on one of the chickens... I think she now things she is a chicken. I will take some pictures of my chickens tomorrow and maybe someone can tell me what kind of chickens I have. I need to know anything that I can about them... so any info would be apprieciated!! -What kind of snacks do they like-- fruit??? vegies?? - How long does a chicken stay fertile after leaving a house with a rooster? Thanks!!!
