An introduction

I have introduced myself before and have posted BUT now that I feel officially part of the group I wanted to say hello again!!

I got my chickens, I got my chickens, I got my chickens

I have 6 of them: Princess Peach - Easter Egger (6mnths)
Bowser - Blue Andulusian (6mnths)
Yoshi - Silver Laced Wyandotte (4mnths)
Toad - Buff Orphington (4mnths)
Luigi - Barred Rock (4mnths)
Mario - Rhode Island Red (4mnths)

They have been great! They have a fairly good sized area to move around. My only concern is nesting boxes (is that what they are called) how many should I have. I only have two spaces right now. Granted only Bowser is laying but they will start sometime.

I am so excited and eager to learn from all of you. I am hoping to get a rabbit in the spring and really hoping to get meat chickens as well.

Anyhow, I am Carly

Re: An introduction


Two nesting boxes should be plenty for only 6 chickens. More than likely they will all use the same one, but the second will be good in case one is laying and another can't wait.
