These will be our first chix. When we first get our chix I'll keep them in an old caged dog crate. We are getting 5 Barred Rocks. I hear they grow fast ... and when they outgrow the dog crate... I'll surround them with cardboard, a foot high... till they're old enough to go into the new coop. My question is.... is it important the chix be able to see "out into the world"... if they are behind the cardboard in an enclosed circle.... is it necessary for them to see out beyond that? Or is that maybe better that they stay in a "small world", within the inner walls of the cardboard? Thanks.
