I just bought 3 chickens, two are plymouth rocks (one with most of it's feathers, other with some more to grow on wings and back) also one cochin (who has all her feathers, it looks like to novice me). We are furiously trying to finish a coop based on the Wichitaw cabin, but it may take another week to finish. I currently have all three in a tupperware container approx 40 in x 20 in. there is a wire top. Is this big enough for them for 1-2 wks. I'm not sure their ages I think the rocks are 4-5 wks. I don't want to screw them up this early in life! Thanks.
