I just ordered 5 chicks from MyPetChicken and they will arrive vaccinated. Do I also buy medicated food? Any suggestions for food? brand? I've never had chickens, so this will be a new experience. But have gotten great ideas reading the forum. I trust everyone who says it's not too late to raise chicks in New Hampshire...I'm starting them in my basement. DH wanted 17 week pullets, but I want friendly girls!!! This will also give me enough time to get a coop built!
