Now we only have 3 :(
We made a coop and moved them in today, 4 got out, dog killed one, 1 came back the other two are missing..
We've been taking care of them in the garage and it's been so stinky we were ready to move them out, those things grow fast over night it's crazy.. so we were pretty sure they wouldn't be tiny enough to squeeze through the fence but after the dog started barking at them they managed to get out.
Hope the other two come back eventually :)

My friend bought 18 chickens, from a chicken farmer who was stuck with them because of supply chain problems. He had them killed and plucked before he took them home. His wife told my wife about it, wondering what they were going to with 18 chickens.

Anyway, now we have a chicken in our freezer :)

Buy chicken wire and make sure they cant push it out underneath as they are escape artists

Aw poor chicks! I hope you found them. Did you shake your food bag and say Chick Chick Chick? My neighbors did that when their chickens used to get out.

My mother in law tried that one time and got some chicks and they all ended up getting killed.

That's what I told my dad but he said he tested the chicks and that they couldn't fit :/

We had a duck/goose. We had him outside and boy was he/she stinky. We didn't have a pond so he ended up dying. It was really sad.
