Recommends 1 nest box per each 5 hens. They recommend that each bird have 2 square feet of floor space. However if the birds are only cooped at nite then they can get along with a little less space. This also depends on the size of birds, as more birds of smaller breeds can be kept vs. less for the larger breeds.
Grit and oyster shell
Grit and oyster shell should be avilable to chickens free choice. Some companies believe that they have a total and complete feed. "Nothing else needs to be added." When chickens are allowed to range they have a better chance of fulfilling the needs from a complete feed. However most chickens are not allowed this total freedom. Depending on the conditions of the soil and the area in which the chickens are allowed to range, they may not be getting enough of these two essential nutrients. This also is true with some larger birds that in a complete feed they may not receive enough in proportion to the amount of complete fee they are consuming. Please allow your birds free choice of these two essential ingredients If you can't find this in small quantities you may want to purchase and divide with a fellow grower.
Purchasing Baby Chicks
Some people miss the early spring sales of baby chicks at their local feed store or garden store that typically carries baby chicks in the spring. However there is also another way for you to get your chicks later and not have to buy large quantities of the breed you might want to purchase. They have a large selection and can be purchased during most of the summer depending on the breed of chicken you wish to purchase. Direct shipment to your home.
