    I love the barrel idea. I would love to have two of the “beautiful” chickens. However, I live in the county but suburbs of city, am 61, with fibomyala. Need to know his much and what is entailed to raise. Would never take and just leave in yard. Also need to put in one area of yard, what would be needed. Thank you for time and interest.

      They need 2 square feet per bird for a coop and a penned area doesn’t take much to care for. you could have 2-3 with very little work.

    remember the size of the chicken, most larger breeds are to large for a bucket or smaller sized nesting box. remember if they decide to set on eggs they will need room to rise above the eggs to turn them and area to move around a little. I have found resetting the nest and leaving 6 inches all the way around for the size of the chicken and 8-10 above its head. My nesting boxes are a simple 16×16 or 18×18 box seems the perfect size for a Rhode Island Red hen.
