In the Brooder
- May 6, 2015
New to this forum and new to having chickens. Got 16 straight run buff orpingtons from the feed store and 10 white leghorns for free from the local 2nd grade classroom. They are in a brooder in the garage while Im turning an old barn into a coop. Planning on letting them free range during the day. Have had them for three weeks and we are hooked. Im looking at incubators and the wife is all mamma bear about her babies. I have a good friend who has been raising, breeding, and hatching chickens, quail, pheasant, and turkey since he was 6 (We are 27 now) and have been getting a lot of info from him but still have come here for some answers to questions. Decided to join so I could interact more and be a part of the group.
