I have an existing chicken coop that used to be a rabbit hutch. The floor is about 3 feet off the ground and it has wire (small rectangular openings) on all sides so that is what the mama and her 9 chicks will be walking on. Is that okay? I'm a little worried about their feet but I like the idea that their "poop" can fall through to the ground below.
I also have just put cedar shavings in the box that Mama and the chicks will be nesting in at night for a couple weeks until they start roosting. The chicks are 4 weeks old and they are all going to be put outside this weekend. Are the cedar shavings okay? I've read good and bad.
Thanks for all comments and help!!!
