Our 9 chickens range from 9-6 weeks old. been hanging out in the former dog pen (sorry Cassie) during the day for a couple of weeks now while the weathers good. Then we herd them back in to our garage where their pen is and they've been since about 2 weeks old. We've spent a LOT of time on our new coop. We just set it out this weekend. I think they're scared of it. The batams don't seem to mind it, but the big chickens steer clear. The chickens look at us from out in the yard, waiting to come inside to their garage coop we raised them in. Any ideas? Is this normal to have spoiled chickens? Has anyone else had this problem? I'd load a picture but I'm not sure how to. It is so cute. My dh is a little let down as I am as well!!
