HI. I'm new to chicken keeping and am looking forward to advice from those of you who are not. I recently brought home 6 chicks (asst) They are approx. 3 months old and so far so good except for today I noticed some feather picking. Now sure what going on but I'll watch closely. My husband and I live on 4 acres with 5 dogs and now the chicks. I'd rather horses but I think I'm getting too old. Hope to make some friends and learn some good stuff from all of you.
