    Looking for something simple to put together for growing chicks out to the point they can be introduced to the rest of the flock. Just wanted to see what others have done to get some ideas. Looking for something for say up to 20 chicks at a time. Thanks

    I don't know what your coop looks like or how big it is but we do have a chicken farm by us. I've seen the coop and what they do is since their coop is so large, they have about 2/3 of it for the adults and 1/3 for the new chicks that will be introduced. They have a chicken wire wall inbetween both sections so the chickens can see each other but not hurt each other. I hope something works out for you. [​IMG]
