    Ok, I have a small coop and I need something to put in it. I just have to have something in it, even this winter. [​IMG] I can't just let it sit empty...that's just not right! [​IMG] Anyone have any suggestions on what would be happy in this? I have converted it from a rabbit hutch to a chicken/fowl enclosure. Since this pic was taken, I've put in a divider wall with a small door so there's a nice dark sleeping area. I also removed the roosts in the wired area. Please...someone, anyone, tell me what I can put in this. My DH keeps asking me what I'm going to put in it...so help me decide!

    well, if you shoot down to my house, you can come pic up a pullet or two to pop in there. i'm just north of Lapeer.
  3. You can probably keep two small bantam hens in there comfortably if you dont plan on letting them out for range time.

    Something small like Japanese Bantams, Dutch, Seramas, Cochins etc....

    Would a couple of EE pullets be ok in this? I researched them on MyPetChicken, and it doesn't look like they get very big.

    I agree with quail, they are neat looking, make cool noises, and lay lots of eggs.

    Can anyone tell me how big their EEs are? Would 2 of them be ok in this enclosure until spring?
