    Woo Hoo!!!!! If it wasn't sunday night and I didn't have to work tomorrow I would have a party!

    It has been a month since we put our coop in place and started using it at night time. At first they wouldn't go in, etc. About three weeks ago I started putting them in by hand. At least they would all roost in the same general place at night (on top of my husband's old car). I finally took away their last roosting place - big old dog crate , put up some lighting inside and they are all in the coop!!! YAY!!!

    Goodnight and sleep tight chickies!!

    I know that I go through this everytime I move the coop.

    Good luck.
