Hi~ New chick mom here, wondering about wait time before I put down the deposit on a custom built coop. It won't be ready for awhile.....my dozen chicks are currently 2-3 1/2 weeks old, happy in a horse trough with heat lamps, go outside on warm IL days in their 'playpen', but the coop I want to purchase, won't be ready for 2 1/2-3 months. In the meantime, I have a brand new coop purchased thru Tractor Supply Co. made for 6-8 chicks they could go in at night, tho crowded. With chicks being 3-4 months of age before 'bigger' coop is delivered, will this be feasible? I appreciate any advice I can get!
