I love it! It's very similar to what I do only I use a tractor I developed myself and fence around it so the free range birds are kept away from them to start. I find getting them on the ground as soon as possible after hatching helps them to develop immunities to the bugs you may have on your property and also allows them to pick up things that will help them learn to forage later on. I think the last batch I had I started on week two outside with a tractor for when the weather was bad and a light to help if they got chilly.So, my DH made me a nice gift for the chicks last year, I think this will be perfect to put them in from the age of 4 weeks, week 5-6 they can go in the run to self-integrate with the other chickens. What do you guys think?
