Hello everyone! I got my first chickens 5 days ago, on Tuesday. I went to a hatchery and got 5 Barred Rocks, 5 Black Australorps and 5 Buff Orpingtons. On Friday, I got 5 Ameraucanas from a local lumber yard. Everyone seems healthy and happy. There is a lot of chirping going on but it seems to be social. I used an old baby crib to set them up. The heat lamp in on one end and they go back an forth from the cool end to the warm end. They are in my sunroom so morning sun shines in on the crib. I'm hoping this setup will be big enough for a few more weeks as we get the hen house set up.
