My wife and I are new to chickens and this site. We bought 6 ISA Browns the day before Easter. They are about 2 1/2 weeks old. One dog incident but only scuffed her a bit. Still have 6 that look healthy and growing like crazy. We are using 2 large wire dog crates. The heat lamp clips on and the plastic tray makes cleaning easy. We have the scuffed one by herself in one cage since the others were pecking at her. Looking forward to learning as we go.
