Right now I have two coops. They(coops and runs) are right next to each other only about 4ft apart. I got them within a few weeks of each other. I would like to have my mixed flock,( banty mixes, EE, RIR...) in the coop that my leghorns and sexlinks are currently in. I was going to switch them tonight once they roost. But I have a few questions. I am going to clean out all shaving and put fresh tonight but there will probably be a few poops in each coop before I get a chance to switch them. Is that a big deal? I have one hen that has 6 babies under her, they are 3 1/2 weeks old. Currently they still fit through the run wire and have gone into the other run. Will moving them A) Upset the momma(she is going with them though) B) Be a danger to the chicks because the other hens have pooped in the run/coop even though they have been in the run? Can i get away with just cleaning out the shavings since the coops are so close and the birds have had contact with each other? Or do I need do a complete scrub down? Sorry for all the questions I could just be overthinking it but i want to make sure. They have all freeranged on the same pasture just on different days..... so wouldnt , with everything else, mean it should be okay?
