    I like how high off the ground it is, more predator proof. How many chickens?

    Just when I'm home for now they are about 9 weeks old so I don't really know when I can let them out. I don't know what is to cold for them so I let them out for a little while then put them up. Can't tell what they are yet I have 4 rir and two slw the slws are for sure a pullet and cockerel but I can't tell on the rir
