We have chickens at the new Yardstead!! We have 4 Golden Comet hens. I went home to visit my dad and he insisted a take a few chickens from his new flock of baby chicks. The baby chicks were about 2 weeks old at the time. I brought four baby chicks home with me without telling Mary, and without any supplies. I wasn't sure how she would react but she was delighted. After a quick trip to a farm supply, and about $20 later, we had a waterer, a feeder, and some chick starter feed. We kept them in a box for a few days, while I built them a small portable chicken coop. I have several pictures of the chickens and the preperations for the care of the chickens and the chicken coop, which is based on the "Chicken Tractor" principle and is portable.
