    I need some reallyneasy plans for building a tiny little coop to use as a grow out coop for 3 chicks until they bare big enough to go with the hens. I'm thinking 2x3ish. I don't know anything about carpentry, so need easy directions.

    i found an old bathroom cabinet that was thrown away..laid it on its back ..took the doors off the front ..and you could use a clamp light or i used an old light fixture on mine...this will keep them until 5-8 weeks depends on the breed how fast they can fly out....you can put a screen on top if you want to keep them longer board in winter but you would have to make sure you had ventilation.. are you keeping this brooder in an outbuilding?
