Hey everyone! So long story short my husband just ordered 10 surprise chicks for me. HUGE problem, I'm in the middle of a full coop revamp and my 5 current hens are in a small coop ( 3'x4') and roosting on a ladder (I've tried to get them to roost in their coop and they refuse) Their ladder, coop, feeder and waterer all sit under a 10x10 awning. Here's my question. I have a 10'x4'x4' PVC Isolation pen I use for new birds. Do you think, if covered in a heavy duty trap, it could suffice as a brooder for 10 new chicks? I'd reline it with .25" hardware cloth as it currently has 1" chicken wire on it. For a "coop" I could easily make a basic coop to either put a heating pad in or a reptile heat light. I'm not very confident they any of my hens would know what to do with chicks just yet. I'm in Oregon so we're getting our lovely liquid sunshine and the temps next week, when my chicks arrive, are estimated to be right around freezing at night for about 2 weeks.
