In the Brooder
- Apr 27, 2018
I currently have a large prefab coop with 6 birds outside. I would say it can hold about 10 birds. I got a little chicken crazy and well what do you know I have 14 chicks in the brooder. 5 will go to my grandma but the rest will stay here. I know it would need a lot of ventilation, and I am curious how everyone who has a metal shed coop accomplished this. Also what about insulation? They will have a very large run and not locked in the coop all day. I would build a wood coop but cost is looking to be 3x as much and I am scared I will mess it up and waste a lot of money. I don't have any help in building it. How do plastic sheds hold up in comparison?
