Will it be ok to use a horse stall for a temp coop? No there is not a horse currently in the stall lol. The stall size is 9'x12'. I can place chicken wire over the top and the rest is fully closed in. I will let the chickens free range during the day and be in the stall at night. I am not totally new to chickens. I had three RIR hens and one rooster last year. I still have my rooster, Conway, but ready to get some more hens. I am ready for my own eggs raised at my own farm. When I can get my pen built I plan to swap breeds to Buff Orps.
