Which coop?
« on: February 25, 2011, 09:44 »
We'll be getting our two week old chicks in a couple of weeks, and we have everything ready for them whilst they're babies, but when they get to 6-8 weeks, we don't have a separate coop and run for them to go in yet until they're big enough to play out with the big girls!

Is there any coops anyone would recommend for them?
There will be four of them and they'll be staying in the new coop and run until they're big enough to free-range with the other chickens and then move into the coop we already have, with my 3 current chickens.
It needs to be pretty cheap as they will only be living in it for a few weeks, then we'll just be storing it incase we need a hospital coop.
Thank you for any help you can give =D

What I did was buy a 3ft square mesh dog cage on ebay for 25, fit a couple of perches in it and kept it in the shed. During the day I gave them the run of the bottom of the garden, its useful for them to have sight of the other birds during the day. The cage is always useful later.
