Hello, We are new "parents" of 6 pheasants and 5 EasterEgger chickens. Soon we will be introducing our 5 chickens with our pheasants. We are planning on placing the chickens in large wire dog crates (with food and water, obviously) so the pheasants can become accustomed to the chickens for at least 2 to 3 days. Is this a good way of introducing the chickens? The coop is 8' X 15' and we have two red heat lamps to keep the coop at least 45 degrees F. during the cold winter. I look forward to reading your words of wisdom on this issue.
