Okay all you experts out there- I need to figure out where or how to put on an addition to this is the coop we just finished building It currently holds four pullets who are almost 3 months old. Which is great- but the problem is... eh, shortly after moving our pullets outside the feed store called to say that they had polish chicks coming in. I was going to just get two but then they were straight run... so i had to get four...I cant believe i came home with FOUR MORE CHICKS! Where am I going to put these newbies when its time to go outside? I'm on my own here- my housemates disowned me when I came home with more chickens. Anyway, I'm hoping to eventually integrate the flocks but Ive heard that can be a challenge with polish chickens being picked on so they need a place to go until they get a little bigger and I want to give the two flocks a lot of time where they can see each other and get acclimated without just throwing them in together. The existing coop/run is 5 X 10 and the coop is 3.5 X 5 elevated 2.5 feet off the ground. Being straight run, i've probably got some roos that ill have to rehome so it may not end up as crowded... What would you do? if you were short on money and seriously burnt out from three months of building? Would you frame in part of the area underneath the coop and make it another mini coop that is only 2.5 feet high? Would you peel off some hardware cloth and add another coop like structure on to the run somewhere else? I do have a little tikes plastic playhouse that I could convert... but it would need to to be caulked, weatherized and predatorized. im not sure what is more work.
