    We have a 5x6 coop we could keep them in along with a heat lamp if cold weather is a problem. Any tips or advice? We would be getting small hatches as we only have a styrofoam incubator....thanks [​IMG]

    Oh, ok thats great [​IMG]. We have a nice closet in the laundry room that will work perfectly for the chicks, and then the 5x6 coop once they get old enough with a heating lamp. I wont be hatching very big groups of chicks, so it shouldnt be too big a deal. Thanks [​IMG]
