In the Brooder
- Dec 7, 2020
Hello, I am a new member here also inexperienced with taking care of chickens, but I am planning on getting two: a silkie and a buff orpington as backyard chicken pets. I am planning on releasing them in the morning to free roam around the backyard, but bringing them back inside the patio for them to sleep so I do not have to worry about any predators. I look at coop designs and they're all pretty big, and I don't really need a coop. Anyone have any ideas what I could build or anything I could buy for the little chickens to sleep at night? I was thinking about buying a bunny hutch and putting a roosting bar in it, and 2 nesting boxes, but I'd like some advice or recommendations before I do anything. Thank you!
