    I need a grow-out pen for about 30 young chickens. About how much space will I need? They will be 6 weeks old in a couple of weeks. Can you share you pictures of your grow-out pens, so I have some ideas. I want to keep them all together before they go into their breeding pens at POL.
    As always, I know BYCers have the best ideas!
    Thanks so much.

    I've never used a grow out pen. I just hatch them & put them in their coop. I guess you have other chickens in your coop ?

    I made an A frame house out of two pallets. enclosed the pen in horse fence(woven wire fence with 1"x2" openings) about 30'x30'. worked great for me cause my adult chickens couldnt fly in but when the littles got out they could get back in. I used it for 30+ chicks.
