    YAY! This chicks are in their new coop! I went out there briefly and when they heard me they started cheeping like crazy and were huddled around the pop door hoping I'd let them back in their old home which was in the garage. When will they stop doing that? It made me feel a little bad for them.

  2. Quote:They're probably begging for food, not for their old home. They'll always do that! And congrats on your coop and getting your chicks in it--it's a good feeling, mine had their first night last night!

    They have food and water in there and they had been eating and drinking from the feeder and waterer earlier so they know it's there. They were pecking at the pop door. When I checked again later I was really quiet to not wake them up. They were still huddled together by the door, but they seemed comfortable enough and ready to sleep.
