chicken coop limit
Free-living chickens?

This is my first time owning chickens. We have 10 hens and one rooster. We have done well so far with the chickens, but I was asking about them free range. Currently they have a chain-link fence outside their coop. We let them each morning to walk around, but they have all the grass in killed the fence. What should I do about it? Should I move freely between them? and it's too late to start living in the wild. Will they return in the chicken coop on their own at night, when I do that. And how far they are from the collaboration to discard it if they were free. We live outside the city limits at the edge of a forest and have many Animals there who would love some chickens.

Chickens are almost always go back to their collaboration in the night – and hang around a little over the day, if it is food. Some of the area to get far away locusts. So if you have pasture you will find it there, eat your mistakes. They will eat the flies from the horses – what the Horses enjoy sometimes. You will also end up in all other pasture – and then the local dogs will kill some of them. Hard to keep chickens in an area where it is very many people. People get all upset if your chicken crap all over the yard. If you have a rooster, you'll soon be one billion chicks – So ….. They learned Plan what to do – you will eat a lot of chickens? – Will you cut off your head and pull her feathers?

chicken coop wood
How much min. I should fence in the area for 25 chickens?

25 I buy baby chickens and conversion of a 5×7 meter wooden in a chicken coop shedding. Any tips on how to build a collaboration would also be appreciated. My dad used to have chickens, so I remember many things about its operation, but will appreciate a consultation!

It is possible to raise chickens in extreme narrowness, if you cut off their claws and Beaks to prevent fights and fill them with antibiotics to prevent disease. But it would be foolish. Their coop is large enough, if you do in the fenced Play area during the day. Chicken should be indoors only to sleep, to lay eggs, or protection from bad weather. I like to use at least ten square feet per chicken, twenty would be better. You will have some taps in this batch of chicks, if half are cocks, you have to cull it to one or two or they will cull each other for you. Twelve chickens is right for a cock. I think about a foot of straw or wood shavings on the floor of my pen. It takes all the crap, and with the constant scratching and manure is rich black soil in a few months. I am assuming that the composting material produced many insects and worms, but I never see one because they eat the chickens.

chicken coop size requirements
Houdan Polish or chicken?

What chicken breed would do better as a beginner chicken? How many should I have? I would like have between 2-5, and that's about, but a few more is fine. How many times did they lay eggs? How well suited they are to a place like Kentucky, where it is warm, but the winter can be pretty cold? Which race would be better held in a stable setup & run free range? What size of Coop & Run would be best? They have special needs? And what other types are good for chickens? I'm not a big eater egg, would these types of type 'must constantly lay eggs' or I would be able to handle the egginess because they do not put too many eggs? Thanks in advance for your help

I have Polish cylinder and we started with 7, one passed away because they ganged on him. Later we found that 5 of the 6 were roosters and only one hen. So it is better to start with about 5-7, because you do not know sex until they are somewhat mature. so we gave back 4 of them and only now have the duty roster and a hen. it is a once-daily for about 7 months lay them. we are free range they will not try to cross the street, and at night they are not running around in her house go /. But I fear, is my little bit of singing, which we have no idea why. And since they are free range egg and you will not find everyday, if u leave early. if we rely, to some 11 her egg in the house or they will not find. In their cooperation, we hold, and hey, you'll probably want them cleaned every 6 months to a year, depending on how many chickens. If They have a lot of sex take the breeders in general, you do not want back. Hope it helps
