I haven't been around here since last spring when I hatched out some chicks and bought some chicks. Now, I have a great flock of chickens, but not enough space. Typical quandry for chicken lovers, I know! I think I have about 13 banty chickens, and 24? regular sized chickens, so almost 40 birds. We have a henhouse that is 8 x 12, and they have been living inside of there for about 2 weeks now. It stinks bad. We don't have the outside run done yet, and I don't think we have any ventilation. We've got to do something, and soon! I like what I saw with the cute little blue henhouse, with the deep litter and tarp. We have litter on the floor, but I don't think enough. I like the tarp idea though. Seems that would make for easy cleanup. I don't really love the banty chickens, where is a good place to just get rid of them? That would free up some space. But I still have too many chickens for the space. Any thoughts? Thanks, Kristy PS, I live in Washington and we already have snow on the ground. I have a heat lamp inside, but it's pretty cold now outside.
