I'm building my girls a tractor/brooder (a broctor) for their broilers (incomming). I am using 2 pallets that measure 4x5ft I plan on having it 2.5-3ft tall. Would I be able to raise chicks in this first broctor and then trans the over stock to a new tractor when they out grow? Or will the first be enough since they will only be in there for a short time before they are harvested? I am also making plans for a tall coop for our longtailed fowl. That coops measurements are 4dX8hX5w there will be a pair of yokohamas in one pen and a pair of sumatras in a seperate ajoining pen. In my mind that's enough room but I'm doubting that. Would I need to make them longer or wider? I was thinking about making it "L" shaped and angling the screening down to give a bit more flight room. Please critique my plans as I am building my vrey first coop! All my previous flocks have used a shed or gutted garage as their coop. Gramps never had an empty house! Henhouse that is. Forgot to state the # of broilers to be housed in the tractor is 10.
