I had to move my chickens coop today and give them there own pen. I had them in with my Fainting and Nigerian goats. The problem is i have added a couple of Great Pyrenees pups and they made one of my chickens disappear. Will they get used to the new location pretty quick or will they jump fences for a while to get back to the old area? It took me a while to get them in tonight as they kept going back to where it used to be. I use 5 foot horse fence for my goat pens and also for the chickens. There is no pen roof to keep them in but it really wasn't a problem before. They have an 8' x 32' pen now. They are easter egger bantams, 5 hens and 2 roosters.

It would be best to close them in the new area for about a week. That way they learn the new place is home.
