Yes, I'll be getting chicks... I'm thinking about starting with 10-12 chicks and 1 straight run.
BF- I like your set up and it makes sense. Do they need their own space to nest, or will they nest right next to each other? I like your idea and way of getting the eggs... I think i'll have to do the same thing.
I will for sure post pics when I'm done. Looking forward to Easter vaca b/c I have some time off and I'm going to get a big part of the coop done then.

Here's a stupid question for you,,, and I know BF or you Kansas can answer this... but how long do you have to keep the chicks "enclosed". I mean, how long until I can put them in the coop and not have to keep the heat on them,, etc.... Planning on having them in the garage while they are little to keep heat on them.

Thanks y'all!
