Just bought a dozen three week old chicks from a reputable dealer here in Texas.
2 Barred Rocks
2 Red Sex Links
2 Golden Laced Wyandotte
2 Buff Orpington
Very excited about this adventure. We have our coop already built, but winter is coming quickly here in Texas. I'd planned on keeping them in a 3x3 cage in our laundry room until they're feathers can allow my to place them in the coop with a heat lamp. Hopefully in the next 3-4 Weeks
Am I forgetting anything that you seasoned vets may want to pass along to this novice bird guy?
