Time for my own peeps and keets. While friends offer me full grown chickens (and plenty eggs) I wish to raise some of my own choice and breed. The guineas mostly for tick control!
I was thinking on 6'L x 3'W x 2"H with a divider down the middle that can be removed as they grow, so as little ones they have a tighter quarters and don't get lost! Is that over kill for 25 peeps or 30 keets later? Maybe too hard to keep warm? I would like them in there until they are feathered enough for an outside coop, run and later free-range. If too large what would work for 25-30?
Raised off the deck with hardware cloth bottom but cardboard and shavings until larger?
I will be able to knock it down when not in use. I find common house door hinges work well on corners, pull the pins and take it down.
Maybe a question for the guinea section but; With the guineas being a bit more aggressive is raising the chickens first them the guineas a good idea so the guineas learn a bit while smaller?
I did read in the guinea section too, like the idea of chickens raising keets too.
Thank you in advance for answers.
