    Hi so here is the problem I have a great coop/run/ aviary that is 6 by 12 and 7 feet tall on a concrete patio only place i have but should make for easy rinsing with a raised coop inside and lots of branches and roosts in the aviary BUT my landlord wants me to take it down saying it is too big I have 21 4 to 6 week old chicks now hanging out in my bathroom with nowhere to go outside. Does anyone have any ideas? they are growing fast and I have already gotten rid of 12 from the original 33 but don't want to re-home any more of them if I can help it. they are all bantams except for three. Any ideas would be wonderful!

    Sorry about your difficulties! I'm not too sure how to help, pictures would be a great benefit for us all to come up with ideas...
    Any chance you can make is shorter? Bantys don't need too much head room. [​IMG]

    Folks who rent really should check with their landlords to get approval before building coops/runs on the property.

    That may be, but it's not going to help the OP with the situation they're in now~ let's try to be helpful.

    Imagica5~ Any pics yet?

    As someone who once helped managed rental properites I can say I wouldn't have allowed anyone to have that many birds either. We have several renters who had 3 or 4 chickens in nice coops and we were fine with that, but 20+ NEVER! If I knew you had then a in bathroom you'd probably be getting an eviction notice.

    SO NOW THAT Y'ALL HAVE ESTABLISHED YOUR DISAPPROVAL OF THE OP'S CHOICES, let's all go back to being helpful!

    I actually bought a tent for my BO's that insist on attacking the other chicks. They seem to like their new digs. [​IMG]

    This is probably not a good option if you do not have adequate predator control around the tent.
