Chick coop

Today was supposed to include putting together a coop/brooder in the main run for the 10 buff orpington chicks who are currently residing in my garage and a friend's run. I took three of them to a radio show on chickens I did day before yesterday so they are in the garage in a tote. I am anxious to get them into a better space (and to remove the chick smell from the garage). We have two previously built coops in the backyard. One has firewood stacked in it, but the other would probably be fairly easy to take it into the main run for the chicks. The hard part is putting wire around it so that they can get outside of that little coop without the big chickens being able to get to them. I wonder if we will get to it tomorrow...?
