    I'm new to chickens, yes, but I've raised quail. I need to know what feed to get, how I should set up my brooder, waterer and feeder ideas, OH JUST TELL ME EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW! Now, heres what you need to know, I've ordered the following breeds, 2 Blue Cochins, 1 EE, 1 EE Bantam, 1 Buff Orpington, 2 Australorps, and 2 RIRs. Thanks!

    Where do you live? If you are able to brood outdoors, that is my first suggestion. Secondly, I suggest a Mama Heating Pad instead of a heat lamp, whether indoors or out.
