In the Brooder
- May 22, 2017
I am new here! Have been exploring all morning! My daughter got 5 chickens from the feed store with her birthday money. To say I am stressed out of my mind is an understatement. We are city people and have never owned any type of farm animal. The one experience as a child having a baby lasted all of 32 hours when it died. We have had these for 2 weeks and should be 4 weeks now. The baby chicks are very cute 4 of them are very sweet and docile and the other one is not very friendly yet. I want to learn all about chickens and how to care for them and want to move them to an outdoor coop in a couple weeks. I am a blank canvas and have no idea what I am doing! They seem to be thriving so far though! 2 were sold as females and 3 as unknowns so I am excited about the farm eggs and hopefully we will only get one rooster (or none) since we are in city limits and neighbors might not like it! Any suggestions or links to main learning threads welcome!
