This site is very helpfull But I think I am getting to much information and am starting to get confused on what I chould be doing at this piont.. My Chicken are about 10 to 12 weeks oldand my roo is a adult so I was told... Can someone please tell me what I am susposed to be doing at this point... I want all of them to be very happy and content and not in need of anything. Right now I feed and water them once a day ushually in the morning.. If the water is dirty when I check on which is about every 2 hours unless I am working. then I change it. They are all kinda shy still at this point but I have been making it a point to spend some time with them everyday and say goodnight every night. How many times should I clean the poop up? And is it true that sprinkling fresh pine shaving in the run good for the hens and makes them more likely to lay eggs for you. I just feel I should be doing more. I want them happy and healty.
