Our big coop is ready this weekend! And our 10-6 week old EE chicks are ready to go outside. We now have 6 older Golden Comet pullets (14 weeks old) in our little TSC temp coop outside...and plan to house them all together in the big coop.
Can I put them all together in the big coop, with a "safe hut" for the little ones? They outnumber the big girls...and seem to be more feisty than them. The TSC coop is pretty small for 10...I thought of putting the brooder (a huge dog kennel) in the coop with the door wired open just wide enough for the little ones to enter.
I'm new to this and wondering if the plan will work?? Of course I'll be there to supervise for as long as it takes to make sure they're all okay.
The big coop has plenty of room and has an attached run that is predator proof.
