I want to add 3 chickens to my flock of 5. These will not be chicks, but pullets and could range from 8 to 12 weeks old. (Haven't been to my supplier yet, don't know what they have) I have a small enclosed portable run that I will add a dogloo for shelter. I was going to place this along side the existing run on the outside so they can all see but no touchy. After a week or so I thought about sectioning off an area in the main run for the newbies but I don't have much room for a shelter. I was hoping my first idea would be fine. Here is my issue, My coop is small and I don't have the room in there to place a dog crate inside and have the newbies in there. I'm hoping once I let them in the main run, they all will just have have to figure things out on their own. Not the best plan but any other ideas would be great. Any tips from small flock owners with small areas please chime in.
