Yep, I ended up with 10 from hatch...and the 6 from the Mill........and all 16 moved out to the coop this afternoon!!
Reworked the legs to fit in that groove on underside of crate tray...which sits on a couple inches of straw and a couple bricks.
After taking chicks out realized legs were too short, so had to quick cut some threaded rod(thank goodness I had some) to the right length.
Couldn't use the board on top because of new extra long legs, so went back to a towel.
But we got it done and they got over the huge environment change, found the heat for their backs,
and after about an hour were flitting around eating, drinking, running around with wood shavings on their beaks, then dashing back in for a warm up.
It's about 40 or so out there now, supposed to get down to 35 tonite....I'll be out there late tonite and very early tomorrow to make sure their not all dead(tongue in cheek).
Brought their same feeders and waterer and tote lid out.
