How should I provide stones for her? The house has an old dog kennel, fenced in all around and on top outside, I could put her out there to let her be outside sometimes.
For the coccidiosis, the stall I put her in was where there was lots of chicken waste. I cleaned it as best I could but pretty quickly. What should I watch out for to make sure she stays healthy?
Thanks everyone!! I hope she enjoys it here :)
We let them peck at the stones in our driveway, lol. I guess you can ask the feed store if they have anything special you can give them to pick through-- theyre real picky about the stones they choose-- theyve gotta be perfect! :)
The old dog kennel sounds like a perfect chicken tractor! You can move it to somewhere that has grass- all around the yard and she can have fresh grass and could scratch for bugs and stuff every day.. shed love that! Oh you might could put a stick or somethin through it (if its chainlink) for a roost too!!
For her to stay healthy just make sure she has plenty of fresh water- a clean place to eat and sleepv and make sure to put her up-- or leave her in the dog kennel if nothin can get her. The stall-- just make sure she don't eat any of the old chicken poops-- keep her food away from that for sure- theres nothin you can give as a preventive -i don't think..
