    I was impatient about starting my flock, so today I went and bought 6 girls!
    I was told they were ISA Babcock. They are Ready to Lay Pullets and I have some questions:

    1. When can I expect to see them Laying in their new surroundings?
    2. When can I let them outside? I am in Canada and it has been a little chilly.
    3. How can I quickly get them acquainted with me?
    5. They have been beak trimmed (poor things [​IMG] ) Is it going to be difficult for them to eat treats?
