I put the finishing touches on the new spacious coop today, just in time to move the 4 birds to their bigger digs before we go away this weekend. They had been living in a tiny tractor-style coop/run with some free range time in my fenced garden. The girls are 29 weeks old, but we've only had them about 6 weeks, so they did not "grow up" with us and we've not had to catch them often... I successfully caught and transferred the first three without much trouble. The 4th however was another story. After much squawking and running, I brought a sheet out to try to "net" her. She flew over the fence and ran into the woods. Maybe she'll come back for bed time. Maybe some critter will have a skinny chicken for dinner... So, how do you catch untame chickens?
