    If I put a dog crate in the coop with them in it would that be a good idea? Or should I keep them in the house? It seems they should have some fresh air and sun. How old should chicks be to get in the sun?

    how many other chickens in the coop? Was mom a member of that flock? When was she moved?


    My mom hens bring their babies out at around day 3, they don't go far - sometimes only out of the nest box to scratch around inside the coop.
