I'm a week into adopting two 8 week old Plymouth Rock pullets and since starting this adventure I have heard so many things about...well...pretty much everything chickens. Much of the information is either counter intuitive or differs from what the last person just told me... The one thing I am concerned about now is "Coop Training". I have heard that you need to keep your birds locked in the coop for a minimum of two weeks to two months in order for them to recognize the coop as their home. After that, so I am told, they will return to their coop at night on their own. So I figured I'd turn to the experts here for answers. Thank you.
