I'm sorry, but this was a legit question before and I have to repost because my other one got locked...https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/623379/caging-chickens...but here's what it said: I want to get some chickens and put them in cages like this http://www.enasco.com/product/C16751N or like this http://www.tractorsupply.com/home-rig-house-trade-rabbit-cage-24-in-x24-in--2179407 Pros? Cons? What do you think? --- It will be full-time housing. I want to put them in there because I currently am having issues with overly inquisitive black bears around here and I thought they would be better up off the ground rather than in a building on the floor or outside. I wouldn't put young chickens in there, I would brood them in my house. Then I would move the birds (I will have less than ten) into my garage when they are about 12-15 weeks old. (We don't park in the garage.) Unless you can think of a better situation for the chickens, please feel free to tell me. If you think caging them would be a good idea (like commercial egg operations or even people who raise rabbits), which cage do you think would be better for them? P.S. Don't worry Hodawg, it was NOT a PETA troll. There ain't nothin' more in this world that I can't stand then them.
