They are great pets. Ive written a little bit about them.
If you are considering getting some visit My Pet Chicken their Which Chicken? tool and policy of shipping as few as three chicks with 100% live guarantee allow you to get a mix of just what youd like. No more ordering an assortment of 25 chicks and finding friends to help you with the excess. I wish wed gotten our original chicks through them.
My favorites from there:
For sick chickens North Portland Vet has an avian staffer.
Plants toxic to chickens.
