So I have been building my coop over the past few weeks and was under the assumption that i was gonna be able to find started pullets a lot easier than i could. So we have decided to go with babys. Cinnamon queens! 25 of them will be ready for me to pick up this saturday. So I plan on making my brooder area outside in the coop with the window shut and everything. Not going to let them get free roam of the 8x12 coop. I got the heat lamp and everything just need to make the section that they will be in.
My question is that with 25 of them how soon will i be expanding the aera for them and then finally letting them roam the whole coop. I know at first not to let them in the run until about 8 weeks, but I am just trying too see when on average they will be fine to run the coop. Thanks for helping out this noobie. This sight has been a great help so far.
