Can you use a 16x8 coop as a brooder if it has electricity? It is uninsulated but is new. Can you do it if the weather isn't super cold but still not warm. I live in Southern Michigan. This is my first adventure with chickens, I plan to get them in March. If I can use the coop I'm gong to get 50 chicks but if I can't then I only have the indoor capacity for 25. I need to place my order NOW because I'm getting some rare breeds. Please, and thank you!
