So we’ve got the chicken coop, the next part is to find some chickens to put in there.
Living in a fairly rural area, I thought this would be easy. We wanted some about 15 weeks old, this is when they start to lay. The closest we could find were 3.5 weeks old.
We knew our local pet shop often got some chickens in, so I gave them a call and found out that the next day they had 1 day old chickens coming in. We figured we may as well get super cute chickens at 3 days old, if the oldest we could get was 3.5 weeks.
In we went, a picked up 3 chickens, they were 3 days old at this point and so super cute!
Our chickens have been very spoilt, they sleep inside a cardboard box under a lamp, J feeds them all variety of things, including worms he goes and finds outside. They are very spoiled, and I’m not sure how they are going to once once living outside.
I’m asking you, dear readers, do you have spoilt pets at your house?
