dware cloth over the pop door opening so I can open the pop door and let them see outside and have more natural light inside the coop before they're ready to venture outside.
I do have an aside question, though. The nursery coop is about 3 feet by 4 feet and the nursery run is about 3 feet x 6 feet. I have 15 Delaware chicks coming. How long do you all think it'll be before they outgrow the available room and need to move to the big coop?
I'm no expert, but we received 15 chicks from McMurray's 8 days ago, and they have been in a 45g rubbermaid tote (probably about half the area of your nursery coop) and they've pretty much outgrown it - but I was happy to have them inside for this long. This weekend they go to our bigger brooder in the garage which is 3'x6'. My guess is you'd be ok for at least 3 weeks and probably longer, but again, there are many more knowledgeable than me on this forum!
