Long story short our coop isnt done yet so the chickens have been staying in a dog crates til this weekend! I came home late tonight and they were already in the crate sleeping. Only they were all in the smaller one. Do I need to split them up? They all look comfy. Should I just make sure im up at sunrise to let them out? Also, the crate is on the ground instead of up on my porch? Will being on the ground hurt tonight? Its lined with hay and they are in my fenced in backyard with electric wire and the crate door is closed. No worry about predetors! Thanks in advance for any advice! Also if this post if in the wrong place please move it! I didnt know where else to put it!!
