New to chickens

Recommended Posts

I am new to chickens, other than housesitting for some recently! I have a few questions please if you don't mind answering.

I am planning to buy land though in the meantime,  would like to get a couple of bantams for my very small garden.  The problem is I don't have grass, just concrete slabs. I wonder if you could advise if this would be suitable, and how I can provide the necessary environment for them?

Hardly anyone who has chickens has grass… I certainly don’t as they will demolish it very soon, unless you have a very large lawn. 
My bantams are partially on slabs, partially on soil. I cover the slabs with wood chips. 
You would only need to provide a largish container with soil/sand for dustbath.
