Hi everyone! Normally I'm just a "stalker" who loves reading all the valuable information but I'm stumped on what to do in my current situation. This spring my daughter got 8 chicks who are now lasting and loving the good life. Note we decided we needed more. Long story short, I went to get 16 chicks last week and knew I shouldn't take me husband but I did and came home with 27! Our current flock has a nice coop and run but we def need more room now so We have been working on making our horse stable into a chicken coop and adding a huge run to it. There are 2 horse stalls and I was going to make one of them the roosting room and the other the laying room. How would you integrate the 2 flocks? Should I build a pen for the babies into the current coop and put the new chicks in there (when it's time)? Then when they are able to be out on their own put them all into the new coop and run together at one time ( with me there to supervise). Or Should I move the current flock over and build a separate pen in the new coop for the "babies". Doing it this way, would you put the separate pen in the laying room or the roosting room? I just want to do this the easiest way possible. Thank you for helping a newbie!
