My chickens are really weird. Is this normal? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I forgot to add chickens like it a bit darkened where they lay but they still need to see, birds don't see well if it's too dark. I would also add fake eggs to the nests so they know where they should lay.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Come summer it will be too warm in there.

Thank you for the help!  We will try that and see if it helps....
