    I have 4 golden comets that were in a 4 x 4 coop with a 6 x 10 run. Well, I was worried about them being in such a small coop this winter and knew I would eventually want more chickens. Now they're in an old shed that is 8 x 10 with a second story they can go on that's 8 x 5. Now, they no longer want to hang out in their 6 x 10 run and I hardly ever see them. We are planning on expanding their run some time but have been busy with solar panel installation so it might be a while. I guess I should be happy they like their new home so much but I sure miss them.

    I'm glad your chickens like the new coop. You'll have to post pics.

    Well, chickens don't do well with change, so they're probably a bit "off" right now too. I'm sure they'll make a reappearance in the run soon. Congrats on your new, bigger coop!
