I have 6 standard breed chickens and 7 yard candy bantams due in 2 weeks (orps, EEs, silkies) I am planning on starting with a rubbermaid tub for the brooder. How long with that group of 13 last in it? A week, 2 weeks? I am wondering if I can go right from tub brooder to brooder set up in the coop. Otherwise I will have to come up with a bigger brooder from the get go. I want to limit how much I move them around. The coop is a mini horse run-in we are modifying. All set with ventilation, doors etc. What do I make the roosts out of? I have read and seen everything on here from flat boards so they can sit flat to tree branches and shower rods. How many roosts at 6' long? How high? I plan on making a ramp for the bantams in case they want to roost and expect someday to probably have more standard chickens. How big a run do I need? Is there a formula of a per chicken square footage? We are putting up 2 runs. On permanent year round and one around the garden so when we are done they can head into that area too from sept - may. We do not want to free range at all. Thank you!!!
