Chickens... We've been waiting two years for this to happen. We've always wanted chickens and have been clearing the backyard with the intention of building a coop back there in one of the corners and having a veggie garden in the other. I figure we will be 90 percent complete on the backyard come the 24th. So now we need to build the coop. Let's say that we kinda went impulsive and bought 6 red pullets from our local Tractor Supply. They are now in a dog kennel under the heat lamp drinking some water. I am told they were hatched today or yesterday. I'm told they should drink sugar water for the first day. I was also told that sugar water was the only way to get my son to drink water as a baby. What are your thoughts on sugar water?
