Ok so we are new chic parents to be within the week. I need some advice! I want laying hens (obviously) because the idea of this excites me. Food, water, meds and all the other random things that they will need is a given, except for what kind of food is best, do I add anything to their water and do I medicate them from the gate or let them show me signs they need treatment. I can raise children and grand-children, but this seems way more complex. Or is that just what I am making it? I need an info buddy that help me out! Someone that is patient because I am a slow learner.
