Last week we moved the chicks from the house to the garage (which solved our dust problem,) but after a few days there it became apparent that they simply needed more space. They were wanting to use their growing wings, and the constant flapping around of a dozen 4-week old, restless pullets resulted in the food and water containers being continually knocked over.
Still, with cooler nighttime temperatures, we didn’t want to risk them freezing at night out in the chicken tractor. But over the weekend we thought of a perfect solution. We moved them into the chicken tractor where they can be outside during the day, then at night we wheel them into the garage where it stays warmer.
