It's a very rewarding job. I like when I get to be Rooster Bob. I feel useful to them.
I just get a buzz from being trusted to understand what they are asking & sort it out for them. The 1st lot are in the nesting boxes. I don't have that many laying just now so it won't be onerous.

I could, If I had the time to take it down. It is kind of like flying without a parachute at that point. No going back so to say. I did that with Jabberwocky and Hattie and they refused to roost in the Big Coop so catching them was required for 2 nights until they did. Maybe I will try it again. This is where the observation and art of the integration comes in.
Oh I see! I agree it's definitely best to let them decide for themselves than introduce stress, and if the prefab can encourage that outcome, it's all for the better.

That thin end of the wedge seems to be getting thicker.:D
My wife let her in the other day, closed the door, and walked away.

I came by and had to ask how long she had been in the house! My wife did not know! 5 or 10 minutes. "I forgot she was there. She's very quiet "


How many meal worms did she eat! :eek:
