i have chicks that will be between 6-7 weeks this week, and chicks that are about 11 weeks old in the coop. I really want to get the younger chicks out of my house this weekend and into the coop. They are considerably smaller than the chickens in the coop, and three of them are bantams. I don't have a dog crate or a cage, so what could I put them in inside the coop to keep them safe from the other chickens? How long should I keep them in the coop in their enclosure?
