I have a confession, I've been lurking and reading as much as I can on here for months... But I finally have to post because... (Drum roll, please!!) the chickens are here!! I brought home four 2 month old pullets today! Barred rock, gold laced Wyandotte, black autralorp, and a white ameraucana. They are settled in to their home-made "coop" (converted giant dog crate) in the garage for now. They'll be living in the "garden" (also known as, the fenced weed patch I will attempt to tame next year) for the summer (with the crate for night time) while I try to convert our shed into a more formal coop for winter. I'm looking forward to life with chickens! Anyone have any tips on socializing pullets? These girls are considerably older than little chicks, and I got them from a local breeder that kept them all in runs with 20-25 birds. I could also post this on the Raising your backyard chickens forum, but would it be under chicks or managing the flock?? They're kind of the "in between" age...

Thanks!

If age is inmaterial to your questions I would post on managing the flock.
