I don't want to sound bad here, and yes I'm new to the forum. My Grandpa had placed an order for 25 baby Austrolap, or I believe this is how you say the name? Any how the order I believe will be here the 25th. The deal is that he has just recently passed 2 days ago, and we will dearly miss him. I now have the responsibility of taking these chicks, and I want them, and don't mind the responsibility, I've always wanted chickens, now I got them. I have 2 of his black austrolap hens here now, and I have built a Cadillac chicken coop for them. It has 5 laying boxes , it's 8' long, 4' wide, and built to withstand a hurricane, with a nice ramp, and a roost pole, plus a yard area where they can go in and out. I'm glad he has the austrolap chickens, because I'm really sure those were what they raised in Iraq, and we ate many an egg off them during the 3 yrs I was there, plus they were docile. The question is, when these chicks get here do I need to split about 1/4 of this coop I built, and just raise them on that side. I really need some help here friends, I want to make this a success for sure. My 3 yr old daughter is so excited about all this, and I want her to be proud. I haven't been around her much being that I was out of country, and this will be hers and Mine first project we'll get together to do. I guess I need a starting point, I'm fealing a tad overwhelmed .
