Hello anybody reading this! I am new to the chicken world and so far all my knowledge has come from "Stoney's Guide to Raising Chickens" and Google. Hoping to make some knowledgeable friends on backyardchickens! I currently have 4 Ameraucanas who are 2 weeks old who are living in my extra bedroom in a brooder and will be staying in there until they get their feathers (frost advisory for us tonight up here!). I ordered them from my local Agricultural Center who said they are all pullets I am interested in meeting anyone who knows about northern WI winters, predators, and has any helpful tips. - My chicks at one week old So far my project is getting the outdoor coop ready. This is what I have so far: I still need a roof (lots of raptors here) and would appreciate some tips I am going to bury that chicken wire to keep out the foxes living under my neighbors house. I have a 11lb feeder and 3 gallon heated waterer that are not shown. I am interested in hearing about deep litter or what people use for their coop floors Now I just want to show off my favorite Anyways, I appreciate any comments or tips that you experienced peeps have! Thanks!
