I have chicks coming in April. I've also got a 12'x4' coop that my adult chickens are not utilizing at all. It is well built, very secure, and has electricity, so I would be able to have a heat lamp. I thought that it might be nice to not have to set up a brooder this time around, but I'm a little worried about a few things. First of all, the the temps in April around here can range from 30's at night, and 40's-50's during the day. Also, as with most coops, there is alot of ventilation, which can let in cold air. Lastly, the coop would not be right near the house. The coops are about 20 yards away from the house. I'm a stay at home mom, so I will be able to check on them frequently.I would appreciate any advice, or pros or cons about doing this. Thanks!
