We just started our chicken adventure a month ago. We bought 6 hens from a local farmer and have had great success with them! Well my hubby wanted more, so he was going to get 2 more hens but came home with four (Rhode Island Reds), two 5 week old and two 6 week old. I have no idea what to do with them! They gave us a small bag of feed. Right now they are on their front porch in a big storage bin (with shavings, food and water). So, what in the world do I do? How long do they need to stay on the front porch? We live in AL and are having a mild winter. We have an open coop but it's currently covered. I have no idea of the actual temp in there though. How should we go about introducing them to the other hens? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
