We’ve decided to try our hand at raising a few chickens (mostly for eggs, later for meat). I now have 6 Barred Rock chicks that are about a week old. I’ve learned that chickens are cute but pretty much stupid, ha ha! For now they’re in a brooder in the master bath – read Rubbermaid tote with pine shavings and a heat lamp. I also built a chicken tractor for when they get a little bigger and go outside. I still need to add the wheels to it – that’s so I can wheel it around like a wheelbarrow and they can fertilize my lawn, ha!
