    A week ago we bought 6 hens of various breeds and 1 roo. Today we bought 4 bo's, and 2 RIR's. They are in the coop, but in a large rabbit cage. Are they ok?

    is there a heating lamp out there keeping them warm? Chicks at a week old need to be kept warm with a heating lamp if they are not with momma hen. Most people have lil or big brooders set up for chicks that need to be kept warm. They need heat till they are pretty well feathered.
