New flock from two different sources. Still need to separate? - Page 2

post #11 of 12

Great!  

The stepping between them was a good move(haha!) breaks up the tension and gets them used to you be being among them.

 

Fake eggs in nests? Hopefully they find the nests soon......put a bucket in that corner for discouragement if they continue to lay there.

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!!!

I did put one of the eggs in one of the nesting boxes for a bit. I will try the fake ones.

Good idea about the bucket. We will see what tomorrow brings.

I reinforced the door today. It was good before but I lost some sleep worrying about them. Now it would take Bigfoot to get in there!
