Hello, Been lurking this site for some time anxiously awaiting my chickens and now they are here! Three turned into eight so far! Ca White, Wyandotte, Welsummer, Delaware, Ameracauna, Australorp, Easter Egger and Sp Sussex. Really want a Cream Legbar and Olive Egger! Only in it for the eggs and new pets. I am a wildlife rehabber for 20 years with rabbits as my focus. Always loved and had animals most of my life. 4H’r as a kid. Aviary/coop in process and yes planning on intergrating my chickens with other birds I already have, such as finches, parakeets and 2 doves. Yes we are taking steps to split off if we have to intervene. We have 2 dogs, 7 cats and an Amazon Gray. We just moved from inland San Diego to the coastal area up on a hill to care for mom. We recently cut down a Tipajuana tree and want to use branches for the birds, does anyone know if they will hurt them? Thanks for all your help!
