My chicks are 4-5 days old and some look nearly twice as big as the others.. Is this normal? I have 24, which is the most I've had at one time. So that may be the only reason I'm noticing it. They are all jumbos Also. Somebody had a chain link dog kennel on Craigslist the other day. And it got me thinking. We have a galvanized tent frame that is about 5X6 and 6 feet tall. If I put 1/2" mesh around the bottom of the walls and cover the rest in chicken wire would it be okay to use as a cage? It would be sitting on the ground and I could keep straw and hiding places in there for them. Maybe even plant some mums or fire bushes and thornless black berries for them.
