You may not need to.I was wondering if I should lock them in there coop and small run vs our yard for a week !!
Yes they are ready to go. . It's a bad pic but they are roll out boxes. They are much younger in the picYou may not need to.
Are your nests ready in the coop?
Got some fake eggs in them?
Any activity in the nests?
I find the most telling thing is finding the nests all messed up,
eggs will appear within day after that happens.
