How old is my pullet? - Page 2

She will! At first she waits patiently at around dusk, but after waiting a while she'll raise her voice and peck at the back door. She loves being held and pet, too- if she didn't object to being cooped up indoors all day during bad weather, I would say she'd be a perfect lap chicken haha.

You'll have to train the new one to do that too, hopefully the older one won't chase her off.

 

Might be harder than if they had a coop.....good luck, let us know how it works out.

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!!!
