In the Brooder
- Apr 26, 2014
The building of our coop will start tomorrow..We are repurposing our wooden playset that my kids have outgrown. I have been researching as much as I can in the past few weeks getting ready to pick them out. We're going to try to start with three, even though most local stores only sell a minimum of 6. I don't think we're ready for that many. We're in NJ and the weather is not exactly spring-like yet and I really don't want to keep the baby chicks indoors for long as I don't have a lot of room in my house, so I was thinking about purchasing 1-2 month old chickens. this way we still have time to get to know them before they go out, have time to finish the coop and hopefully they'll stay warm enough..Any thoughts?
