    Not going like I thought. They are pretty much staying in the coop or right beside it.

    It just takes time. Chickens are very aware they're pretty much at the bottom of the food chain and they like to stay close to shelter until they get more confidence in their safety and general surroundings. give them a while and they will spread out more.

    Thanks I figured they would be all over the place but I'm kinda happy to see them stick close!
