We picked up 6 Cinnamon Queen chicks when they were only a few days old on Feb 22nd.
The feed store we purchased them from says they are a cross of the RIR roo and White Leghorn hen.
We moved them outside yesterday intending to bring them back into the house last night, but they are so happy having more space that we left them outside. We have a run attached to the coop, but planned to make it more predator proof before leaving them out there.
We put a light in the coop and turned it on last night, hoping they'd go into the coop to sleep, but this morning they were all huddled together in the run. During the day, a couple of them will go into the coop to rest, but so far they don't seem very interested in the coop. They have no problem with the ramp and I've put some dried mealworms inside the coop, but they just aren't interested in going inside.
Any ideas of how to get them to use the coop?
This is all new to us and even though I spent a lot of time reading information, I'm learning as I go.
Great site, BTW! This site has turned up so many times while I was doing research that I figured I'd join.
