Hi Guys, I have an half acre backyard with a garden and a fanatstic idea came to be today: raise couple chickens! I'm not totally new to this as i have raised 1 chicken for 1 week or so before slaughtering it. But now i want to keep one from chick form totally as a free-roaming chiken, i think the kids would love it. i have done my resarch and everything is fine except: What do i do when winter comes? I dont want it in my house. thanks anyother advice? is it a good idea to let the chickens into my garden? (which is fenced) Also: Since i have a 4 year old, i was wondering if full grown chickens peck? can they be dangerouse to kids? And how do i keep my chickens from running away?
