    I am thinking of getting some 10 week old ISA brown pullets. I've only ever gotten them at 18weeks old approx before, and I was wondering do they need anything in particular at this age?
    They no longer need the heat lamp etc.

    At 10 wks, they are old enough for flock grower/all flock feed but not layer feed... that is all I can think of... other than that, they are just a couple months younger than what you are used to... :)
