    I have 4 Chickens on the way in their incubator. I live in a HOA townhouse community where no one can have anything in the yard. So no coop. I want to keep 2 or 3 in my garage and raise them as soon as they leave the brooder. I would let them run around outside during the day. I'm thinking about combining a play pen "with roosting bars/heat/pine shavings/and smart things" and a big dog cage "for when I need to clean the pen/for eating/and also have a heat lamp in there if it gets cold" Do you or anybody else have any ideas? I cant cut a hole in the wall for a run. Its against the rules.

    Thanks!!! I'll be watching the stream. Look for me "johnaloha" in the comments

    You can keep the chicks in the garage with everything they need heat lamp shavings etc. But this will be a problem when they get older.
    The chicks will live happy until they are 2 months old.
    You will have some unhappy chickens. Chickens love grass and yearn for it. What would your setup be for when they grow up?
