We originally got 4 day old pullets from our local farm store for our neighbor to raise for us. They ended up getting too many, so we repurposed a big shelf into a now coop in a sorta hurry. Still have to work on the chicken garden ( run), but they are only 3 weeks today, so will be staying in the coop anyway. We have 2 more chicks coming from the neighbors, but they still need the warmer, inside coop. Because they are still little, I am checking on them a lot to make sure they are warm enough.
