Hi there! We are a family of four with two daughters, 10 and 7. We moved into our country home from the city almost a year ago. We wanted to start a bit of homesteading and decided to start with chickens. None if us have ever had chickens, so we are welcome to any advice you have. We just bought a ready set up coop with two hend about 3 years old, a Red Star and a Black Austrolorp. Unfortunately, something got the Red Star the day we got them, and the one seems to be very unhappy and lonely. We just bought four chicks to be introduced to the hen in the spring, but are worried about her in the meantime.
