Does anyone have any picture of chicken coops/tips on chickens? I’m getting some chicks in the spring, so I’m doing homework on them.

Are you talking about like backyard chicken coops? At D&B there are some really cool ideas to use. Also, the triangular shaped chicken coops are cool. The ones with the open bottoms so you can move it around. Cat food has more nutition and is better than layer pellets to feed them, but it is more expensive. Have fun with them! Just so you know, roosters seem to be more friendly and have more personallity than hens when they are handled

Thanks for replying!
But...
What’s D&B?

My town doesn’t allow roosters :(

D&B is a farm store. I am from Idaho, so maybe you don’t have it where you live. I think they are mostly here in Idaho and maybe Oregon. I hope you don’t get any roosters in your batch, they sometimes accidentally give you a rooster chick or two when you order just hens. I would love to see pics when you get them! Are you getting them for egg laying purposes? If you are not getting them just for eggs, mottled hoodens are awesome! We got our first three this year and they sit and peck our legs and step on us until we pick them up

Yeah, I don’t think there’s any D&Bs in Connecticut. :P I’m getting them because their awesome and eggs are just an added bonus.
