I got them as day old babies from TSC and bought all the stuff I would need for a brooder . My husband said that he would start on a coop for them . Well to get an idea of how my husband does things you can compare him to Tim The Tool Man Taylor, off home improvement. We have 6 little chicks and a monster of coop in the works outside . They have been in their mansion for about a month and at first we would go out every night and lock them in the hen house and then let them out the next morning. we still have a light hanging in there so we even tried turning it on to lure them in..nope. they all roost on the same pole outside the hen house. Its all enclosed ,so they are safe.Im just worried what happens when it comes time to start laying.
