Moving day is approaching

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As the coop is being completed I was wondering how to transition them into their new home . I just read online somewhere that it is recommended to keep them locked in the new coop. Is this true ? If so, for how long ?

It is true. Usually 2-3 days of lockdown will be sufficient to teach them where their new "home" is. This search may help you
