im planning on getting 6 point of lay girls from D2D farms in October. My daughter's friend needs to find a home for her 1 1/2 - 2 yr old chicken due to zoning problems at her house. Do you think that I'd be able to put my new girls from D2D and my daughter's friends chicken in together? i figured that the 6 new girls wouldnt really know each other anyway and maybe i could sneak the single one in with the crowd?
Hello all! We are newer to the central coast; transplants from WI. The house we purchased came with a very sturdy coop and enclosed run about 10x12' in total size. My parents raised meat and laying chickens, so I understand the basics of their care. But, it was a different climate in the upper midwest. We are going to start with full-size chickens instead of chicks. Two questions - 1. How many chickens would be a good fit for a 10x12' coop? 2. What advice do you for a newby?
