Hello all. I picked up 4- 3 month old pullets (Partridge Rocks) Monday. They are adjusting well. Even to the dogs watching them all day lol Sunday night we got the 8x4 run hooked up to the main house/run. The girls figured out quite uickly how to use the little tunnel to get from one to another. They are using the pvc feeder I made easily. I am hopeful they will use the nipple waterer as easily when its up & running. The 1st night I put them in the roost area but last night they tucked themselves on their own at dark. I just need to train them on how to close the door behind them. They are not on the roosts at night but all cuddled in one of the nesting boxes. I figured when they get a little older they will start roosting? I put a limb in the large run area and one gets on it to sit for a little while.
I am looking forward to eggs in the next month or 2 :)
Here is the main house with small run. The lattice work behind it is the 8x4 big run.
My girls after I brought them home. Didnt take them long to start scratching for food
Their preferred place to sleep......in the nesting boxes :)
