I just ordered 1 male Dominique chick, 2 female Dominiques, 1 female Light Brahma and 1 female New Hampshire. They're going to arrive Sept 10-12. I have a dog kennel that we'll be modifying to accommodate them once they're old enough to live outside. Until then, I know they have to be in a box with a lamp and everything. I guess I just kind of feel like I'm winging it even though I've been reading up for hours on chicken forums and even a few of my friends who've raised chickens are offering to help. I just don't want to get them and then totally not know what to do.
