Wet it. Start small. Be patient.
Such good news!!!!
Can you buy adult chickens? I am trying to picture Baxter and baby chickens together...
Sorry to hijack but I have been considering getting chickens simply to let them roam around and eat bugs. Is that completely impractical? I dont want the eggs or, quite frankly, more...
Actually on the insurance, the owner is the payee if its for mortality.
