We have 24 Buckeye chicks that are 1 week old today. They are twice as big as when we got them. We currently have them in a box that is 50" X 20". That box is inside an enclosure that I made by splitting and putting together 2 watermelon boxes, it is roughly 8' dia. and 2' tall. Should we let the chicks into the larger area? If yes, should we leave the smaller box there with the end cut out as a coop area for them? I am concerned that if in the larger area, they wouldn't find their way back to the heat lamp. Also, would they use a roost if I put one under the heat? We were working in the garden this AM and found a bunch of small worms, took them to the chicks, and what a riot! 23 chicks all chasing the one that was brave enough to pick up a worm.
