I got four rhode island red pullets today. I've been planning to get them for a while now, but I just kind of went for it today. I had originally planned to just stop by the store and see if they had/could get the feed I wanted for them (scratch and peck corn and soy free) but then I saw they only had 7 RIR pullets left! So I had to get them. I bought the feed, pine shavings, a heat lamp, a feeder and waterer, and the chicks all at once, then got them home and put together their new temporary housing. They are in my bathroom right now so my pittbull doesn't get at them, though he doesn't seem terribly interested in them anyway. They are already so docile and let me handle them without a fuss. They are all eating and drinking well, active and running around chirping like crazy. Every hour or so they all cuddle together and take a 5-10 minute nap, then scatter and get food and water. It's pretty adorable.
