I got chicks at a time that I'll never get them again. A week before Christmas. I now have 13 hens still inside, and things are getting hairy! It's still VERY cold in NW Ohio, so I don't know if they can deal with being moved out to the unheated garage, even if I put two heat lamps over their area. It will be an area I'm going to have to build with plywood, etc. We've been taking cardboard boxes and taping them together to make larger brooders to date. However, it's nearly impossible to clean and the carpet has been ruined from spilled water. They're starting to get too rowdy, and I know they need more room. If I build a draft free area in the garage, though, will it still be too cold for them? All are (of course) fully feathered. They will go into our shed in the spring which will be fitted into a coop. However, with the horrible winter we've had, we haven't been able to do that yet. I've read about 'transitioning' chicks to the outside, but they're just over 2 months old and I honestly don't know how we'd haul 13 hens in and out every day.
