    Due to issues with the town we live in, we have to move our run. We are going to build a tractor for the girls, ASAP. since there is so much snow on the ground the girls don't go outside now. their coop is very large as it's in the garage right now. Do you think they will be ok without a run for a few weeks (10 days)? they will have about 5 square feet each inside. there is also a window that we open on nice days. plenty of ventilation.

    As long as they don't get bored and start fighting or picking on one of the lower pecking order girls they'll be fine. When I move chickens between coops I lock them all in for a few days and the only problem I've had is the cussin I get for not letting them out.
