    I have 3 chicks that are 7 weeks old and need to get outside. I also have an existing flock of 4 older ladies. What would be the best way to move them out? We have a smaller coop that is about 4 ft. × 5ft. so not a ton of space to put them in there with a separate encloser. We also have an attached smaller run that is open (no roof) to the elements. I'd rather not but/build a separate temporary coop if I don't have to. Any thoughts or suggestions?
