I am now living with my family of 6 and 16 baby chickens! Now we've really gone and done it! LOL We bought 12 layers to start and 4 for meat... we will go back for the rooster later this week. The children are so excited it is a little frightening.
They have to stay inside under a heat lamp for the first 2-3 weeks and then we will be able to move them out to the hen house. That also gives us a couple weekends to build a "coop" area next to the hen house for the feeders. YEE HAW!!!
