I have 20 almost 6 week old chickens and I want to know if anything else besides food water and the roost needs to be in when we first put them in. I plan on putting the nesting boxs in later. I plan on keeping them in the coop until they get large enough to not get picked off by the hawks then they get to free range on 2.5 acres. The coop is 12x7x8.
