Soo I am now able to hatch my own chicks, thanks to Broody Roux and ... excited Philippe. Now I have chicks due in a week or so - we gave Roux 12 eggs to sit on, and i've never candled, but my dad drop one, and did say it was developing, so I know shes doing her job. I am planning on raising these chicks with the rest of the flock. The coop is not huge, but big enough for everyone until it gets warmer and they will move to their summer enclosure. I was planning on putting in a large dog crate in the coop for Roux and the chicks. The problem is that I need to add a heat lamp to it and so I can put a top on the crate. I also need to add chick feeders in there somewhere where the chicks can get to it, but not get pestered by the older birds (7 big ones). I know that I can change everyone's food to flock grower- but I still need a place for just the chicks because the main feeder is too high up for the chicks. Has anyone built a creep feeder type thing for chicks? or Have a suggestions on how to build one?
