Hello everybody! This is my first post so I hope a similar question hasn't been asked, but I haven't seen it if it was. I have an order of 25 chicks coming in September. I thought I better start making preparations for a coop. (I'll have them in my basement initially.) I have 3 acres so I do plan on letting them free range in nicer weather, but I live in north-eastern Indiana and fall/winter is nearing so I thought about building a coop inside my garage roughly 100 square feet. If they will be confined only in cold/snow weather, is it necessary to build a run as well? When nicer weather comes back I plan on letting them out in the morning and closing them in at dusk. Can anyone refer me to plans specific to inside a garage? Another side question: With cooler weather approaching, at what point can I put them in the uninsulated garage? Thanks in advance for any input. By the way, this forum is such a great resource. I really enjoy reading through all of the posts!
