New here. Its wonderful to read all the great stories, ideas and Wisdom! We started a few years ago with about 3-5 chickens. We have 3 acres of land, no close neighbors and dogs are in a separate yard. Never have had predator problems (racoons, coyotes, etc.) Chickens started to roost in pine trees. Last Year we got a few more young chickens from the local animal shelter, and one turned out to be a rooster. We now have 6 laying hens, 4 young hens (2-6 months old); 8 pullets and two chicks; Rooster has been busy. All of them now, except "Old Girl" (who roosts on the composter) roost in the trees. We are going to build a nice coop, but want to let them free range during the day. Bigges problem... can't find eggs. Is it too late to train to roost in coop at night and lay eggs in there? Advice greatly appreciated.
