I'm looking for experienced people who have done this. I just got some new chickens today, and put them in a large kennel inside my chicken coop, so everyone got to know each other through bars. My husband suggested I sneak them in at night. So i went down to the coop (i say down cause its appx 1000 feet away, downhill ahaaha), and i took the new ones out and took them into the hen house, where the others sleep. Well the newbies fell off the little perch ( 2 ft )and into the corner, and decided to sleep there. My rooster heard it and made a "what the heck" noise. Well. Everyone quieted down, and everyone is sleeping. I plan on checking on them about 5am or 530am. I left the kennel in their with the door open if they need a place to run to get away from anyone.... Any experiences with this? Did i do the right thing?
