    So maybe I was nuts, but in October I ordered 4 Black Copper Marans for November delivery. I had originally planned to keep them in the somewhat insulated garage, but could t get the temp up enough. They are currently in my basement. Well, they are now 3 weeks old and getting huge. What to do? They can't stay in the basement... And I don't know about the garage. Is there something I can put in the garage to put them in?

    You can get one of those metal kennels with the tray at the bottom for the time being. We have 2 in the basement for our rabbits to stay in for the winter months. They are big enough for a litter box, a cat bed and food dish.

    Do you mean to keep in the basement? They are in a rabbit cage now, although it is not as big as what you were talking about.

    We kept our brown Cochin in one for awhile till she grew her feathers back. The young roosters were doing a number on her.
