    Aloha I am getting two 6 week EE chicks and was wondering if they could go in a small coop since they are our first and there won't be any other chicks/chickens in there?;)

    Given your weather, they should be fine. Congratulations on starting your flock - 3 is better than 2 just in case something happens to one. Chickens like company.

    Thanks! We're actually getting 4 more day old chicks within two weeks time sent from the mainland. It'll be awhile till there all together but there will be six total. I'd wanted to get 3 pulleys from the local gal I'm getting the two from but the original agreement with my other half was 3 lol so if I get 7+ from the get go he will flip :lol:
