Ok, I have 51 very energized chick's. They are 8 days old. They've just discovered they have wing feathers now and they have to fly everywhere. No more walking for these little girls. Anyway, I have 3 that got over the brooder guard today, and one that perched on top of it, just to get my goat. The problem is, even though it's in it's own coop, there is no water outside the brooder guard, and I don't have extra waters. Is it safe now to take out the brooder guard and just let them have the run of the coop? it's 6' X 8'. I'm just worried that they'll get out and I won't be able to get them back to food and water like today. I'll be working all day tomorrow as well.
