I use what ever I can find around the house, if nothing, I would go to a hardware store and pick up some fine to med fencing. I ordered the pvc fittings from ebay. I need two coops because we can't put different age chickens together until they grow up. Both coops are 12 feet long. I can bring 12 chickens to maturity with the small long coop. They like to perch together on the long perch.Oh. That seems like a bit of a problem.
Would this pen work? https://www.amazon.com/GABraden-Ani...ncoding=UTF8&refRID=WZBF06QHAQ6911Q34C0T&th=1
Would I use the brooder to heat the chicks when they are in the playpen and the heater to heat the coop?
Notice the heat lamp, it has a 200watt bulb and I show a dimmer extension cord from Lowes. You need a dimmer switch. After one week they can stay in the small cage outside during the day and I bring them in at night or if its windy.
