Question by : How to care for a baby chicken?
I want to get a pet baby chicken. But I really don’t know anything about raising chickens. So does anyone know any information that can be useful to me? These are a few questions I have:

-How long do chickens live for?
– Do they need to have a light bulb? and how long do they need it for?
– Do I have to have bedding or can I just use news paper?
– How old do they have to be so I can move them from indoors to a coop outside?
– Can they live in a coop during the winter?

And any other information on raising chickens would ve great. thanks :)
