Every April I get new chicks & this year instead of getting just 6 I'm getting 12. We usualy put them in a Guineapig cage with a heat lamp above it in my basement, but I don't think this is a good idea with 12 chicks because they won't have much room. So once they are big enough I put them in a small coop with a run outside that my Dad made just for the chicks, and I was wondering if it would be ok to put the 12 chicks staight in there with maybe a heat lamp because its much bigger than the cage. It would be even better if I didn't need to put the heat lamp in but I don't know if that would be a good Idea. So is this possible & safe?
