Beginner questions about chickens and pigs
Hi, hope maybe some of you can give me some advice on chickens and pigs. I have been reading what you have to say about breeds of chickens and it is so helpful. We are planning on getting a bunch of chickens and two piglets this spring. I am mainly getting the chickens for eggs and wondering how long until they start laying. Also, I know they need to be kept warm as babys, when can they go outside? I live in Spokane Wash, still freezing at night sometimes into May. I don't want to keep them over the winter, too much work, so should I buy full grown chickens instead?
As for the pigs, I don't know what I don't know. This will be really new to me and wondering what I need to look for and worry about. We have 2.5 acres, so plenty of room I think, Thanks!
