Wow, oh boy......maybe I bit off more than I could chew. My Thoughts where to take half my garage,,,maybe 10ft by 20Ft ??? Its dirt floor . I thought I could toss in a couple bales of hay for nesting and like a kids pool full of water. I dont really want to cozy up to them just want eggs. I like brown eggs. Do I need a Rooster??? How many should I start with?? Do they eat scraps from the kitchen, like lettuce, tomatos , oranges,, potato skins??. Do I need to buy special food for them? I dont plan on leaving them outdoors, to many predators here. This week I am going to get some fencing to divide my garage up. Oh My.
