I picked up my 12 chickies today I currently have 6 hens occupying a 12 by 12 coop in our barn. Right now my brooder is in a closed off utility room in the house. I was planning to leave it there for only a day or two. Would it be okay to move my brooder into the big coop in a couple of days? The brooder is a 45 gallon rubbermaid tub so it is very deep, and I could put chicken wire over top...I was just leary about putting the brooder out in the open in our barn. We have had a raccoon trying to get in for days and do have a trap set up. We also house a stray cat in our barn that keeps away unwanted rodents, but she doesn't bother my hens.
