    I just got 2-1 week old Keets this morning. We had planned on building a small coop for them but it would be so much easier (and economical) to put them in the chicken coop. The could actually have their own "room" within the coop. Is their a problem with doing this? Do they really need their own coop?
    Thanks!

    I don't think you'd need to make a seperate room for them. Mine are with chickens and are fine. They sometimes like to bully but not too bad.
