I'll start with a disclaimer: I know this wasn't the best way to do this! But, my mother just bought me 3 chicks to give to my broody hen. (She thought she was helping!) She's going to set up a brooder for them until I get out of work and can figure out what to do with them. My question is about the best way to separate mommy and babies from the rest of the flock. I have an 8x8 shed-shaped coop, with nest boxes raised off the floor. I don't think the babies should go into the nest box, as that would be far to fall and they couldn't get back in. Would I be better off sectioning a part of the coop (wouldn't have access to the run), or using a large dog crate (I can build a mini-run)? Any tips are greatly appreciated, since I am unprepared!!
