Hello everyone, my name is Jackie, I want to start raising chickens ! Tommorow I'm suppose to pick up four black bantam cochin pullets and one barred bantam cochin rooster. They are 2010 hatch, so they are young. They will be living in my shed outside. Now my question is, it's the middle of winter and it is COLD outside, so will they be okay ? Also what do I need to feed them? Chick food? If so, how much does it cost approx.? At what age can they eat cracked corn and layer mash? In the ad for the chickens, it states that the barred rooster is out in an unheated area, but the others are in a heated area. So will they have to be somewhere warm? My shed does not have electricity Any other tips and stuff are appreciated, since I'm completely new to chickens. Thanks !
