    My chicks are suppose to ship on the 29th.....I am getting really excited and nervous...Hubby and son got the roof on the corn crib/run and he says the coop will be done start to finish this weekend...I have the brooder cage ready and when I was washing it I got to thinking that I think it is going to be to small very quick!!!! It is a large rabbit/guinea pig cage but I think that 10 chicks will outgrow it pretty fast....

    The coop will be insulated....with electricity....so They should be able to go out to the coop
