    ok; the Pre-K class hatched 35 chicks...

    the principal wants 2...

    that leaves 33 now...

    My SIL/BIL wants whatever....
    they have someone who will take whats left...(I cant get from the teachers if they REALLY want some or are just doing it for a favor)...

    we only have a 10x10 coop... (we have all summer to build another one; but not nearly as nice as the one we have now...

    we have a 250 sq foot enclosed run...
    they are going to have a HUGE backyard when we are home to roam around...they also will have a huge corn field I'm sure they'll go into..
    I'm just concerned that they'll get lost amidst all that corn when its growing/grown and not find their way back...

    but I already have 31...and honestly; the ones we would pick up now would be processed when they are mature... (which is when exactly?)
    so can my run/coop handle them until they are ready to process??

    TIA!
