Who knows anything about raising chickens?


I have my coupe and fence up, now what do I put in the coupe floor and fenced yard? I have read lime, pine chips, straw but I can't find the whys and where what altogether. I thought it would be a good question for you great farmers out there. Or just ones experienced with a few caged chickens. What do I do so I can go pick up my babies up?

    Thank you! So I should put lime everywhere not just in the coupe? I am only going to have about three chicks, maybe four. Their food then goes in a dish or can it be thrown on the floor/ground?

    Well I hope to have them free range but being so small at first I know they are safer penned up. Thank you.
