The Chicken or the Egg . . .
It's the age old story, which came first. Well, here's a first for me and I'm looking for advice. My husband has recently suggested that we consider having our own chickens! Let's be honest, I don't know a darn thing about raising chickens. I know a lot of you do, so I'm looking for some advice.
Some of my questions, can chickens be left alone? For how long . . .
Do chickens travel well?
What are the best and easy going chickens to start with?
What's the lowest number of chickens one should have?
Can they stay outside in the winter?
Does the coop have to be heated?
How long do they live?
Can anyone recommend a good chicken book? Yikes, so many questions!!!
Thank you for all your advice!
