This may be a stupid question, but I'm thinking I would like to get my babies and their mom out of the coop and in their own spot until the babies are a bit older. I have a great cage that my DH built for babies (that were raised in the house) to hang out in when they were big enough to go outside. I'm thinking about putting that big cage inside the run w/ a pet carrier to use for a nest box, and letting the mama hen hang out there all day w/ her babies. Maybe bring them in the coop at night to sleep? Would this work? The big cage is an approximate 5' x 7', but there's not bottom to it. So, the chicks would be on the ground. I've had one set of chicks raised just fine in the coop with the others, but I now have two babies that look like their crops are full (7 days old), and I do not want that to happen with these ones as well (these ones are a day old). This way, they would at least not be on the wood shavings, and safe from being trampled. These are my main concerns. Also, if I do this, how long should I do it for? Like just a couple weeks maybe?? Thoughts would be great - Thank you!
