Do any other Chazzers have pet chickens? I am picking up my "babies" on Thursday! I am getting two Ameraucanas, 2 cuckoo marans and one buff brahma; I'm also getting my friend's 4 cuckoo marans chicks for her to pick up from me this weekend. This is my first foray into "backyard chickens" and I am so excited/nervous! The Ameraucanas & the Brahma will be about 2.5 weeks old, and the Marans will be only 3 days old! I am hoping against hope that they don't kick the bucket on me, and that I can expect eggs by the fall. Also, our coop is actually an old little tykes playhouse that I obtained from a coworker. They'll have about 180sqft for a fenced in run that we are in the process of completing as well.. Advice, support, etc is welcomed, appreciated and encouraged.
