In the Brooder
- Mar 30, 2008
I am new to raising chickens. Our Rhode Island Reds are now two weeks old. My husband is getting ready to begin building the chicken coop. My main concern at this point is worrying about them contracting lice. We plan on designing a fully enclosed run which will also be set in our backyard which has a privacy fence. If my chickens do not come in direct contact with birds are we okay?
