Thank you. I was getting worried because of daylight savings and approaching winter. I am planning to move them to a new coop this weekend.

I'd hold off on that for this year, a bit late to start, and see how they do over winter.

Maybe start a lighting next Aug/Sept for next winter.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I got my first egg today!! I can't believe how excited I was. I didn't even have nest boxes ready yet. I've lined the boxes and put the egg and some golf balls in them to encourage the others. Any other advice??
