    I have had chooks here before, but they have been grown up and rescued.
    I now what to start my own flock. Have a Fox prof cage 2m X 2m and 2 dog boxes as layer boxes. Plastic seems to be the easiest to clean out. Clean houseing and I'm liming all the timber.
    I can add more layer boxes if needed.
    How many chooks could I get? They free range mid morning to they go to bed and I am generally with them. Using them to get rid of earwigs as I pull weed out.
    Greatfull for any information that you think I could use.
    Cheers Jody

    What do you want from the chooks? Eggs, meat or personality?
