Help! I need advice from an experienced chicken farmer.Submitted by laurenorourke on Sat, 09/08/2012 - 14:35
We want to raise three or 4 laying hens in our back yard. How many baby chicks should I purchase? I know some will die and not survive shipping, and some may be males.
We are building this: http://artisandesignsdtb.blogspot.com/2009/06/new-urban-mobi...
It can be moved daily and we have a big back yard. Someone is giving us all the stuff to raise them till they are several weeks old...heat lamps and such.
