Today os my birthday and as a gift to myself, I am getting 4 Dominique Hens that are about 2 months old. I couldnt pass up the bargin price of $2.00 for each of them. I had to scramble to get the run finished but it is done now and look forward to the new additions to the family. I was hoping for RIR's but decided on these as they also lay brown eggs and that is what I was looking for. Being that this is the first of my newly aquired addiction, I have a couple questions. How soon can I let them free range on my 3 acres? Do they need to be cooped up any length of time before I let them into the run? At 2 months old, the owner suggested I get Chick Starter for their diet. What do I give them after this and at what age do Istart giving it to them? Thanks for all the relpies in advance. Time to blow out some candles!
