I hope I am not going to be opening a can of worms. I ordered 25 chics because that was the fewest I could order. I have a little play house that is being converted to a chicken house. It is 6 x 6 which I realized after I ordered the chics is a tad bit too small for all 25 chickens. I am having 3-6 nesting boxes that will be added to the outside of the house. The total square footage of outside space will be about 225 ft, plus I will let them out during the day after they know where their home is. These are all pullets (well hopefully, they are supposed to be all pullets) During the summer I don't think their really will be a problem, it is this winter that I an concerned about. Is there a simple way to add extra snow free areas to the outside of the pen for the hens this winter? Or am I worried about nothing, or should I start building another pen for half the chickens?
