As you can tell by the pictures, my husband and our 14 year old son built a new pen and coop for the young chicks who were ready to be moved out. We built the 2nd pen/coop for two reasons. First because we want to keep the chicks isolated from our chickens so they can get to know each other and not injure the little ones and secondly, we will want a coop for our layers and one for the broilers. To see these guys when they were a little younger and still living in our home, click here Our new chicks.
