So I've been brain storming like crazy trying to come up with a simple solution for my 3 chicks that are almost ready to come out of the brooder but way too small to go with the big girls. Currently I have them in this, but what about sectioning off part of the run as their outdoor enclosure and covering the wire of this mini tractor with wood as their sleeping quarters? It is small, only about 18-19 inches tall at the peak and a total of 43 inches long no including the handles. I could leave the end wire for ventilation, take out the interior wall that currently divdes the pen from the interior and cover the sides with wood. The run is as predator proof as it gets, so the little sleeping coop doesn't need to be. I could put a floor on it, some legs to get them off the ground? They'd have a large run, about 5'x5 So would modifying the little tractor work for a tempory coop until they are grown?
