    Quote:Thank you! Speaking of which, our chickens have been around for about two weeks now. They were originally our neighbors, but they wouldn't take care of them, so they free ranged all day, then went home to roost, but cam back the next morning. Then, they moved the chicken's coop, and they were lost! We got the coop yesterday, and last night, we waited until dark, and caught the chickens and put them in their coop. Now, I am hoping we ill get eggs soon, but it will probably be a week or two. We don't know how old the chickens are, but are their any tricks to tell if the hens still lay?

    [​IMG]Ashley, is that beautiful horse yours?

    I'm not sure I understand ,did the former owners give you the coop? If you lock them in there a few days - they will consider it their home and come back to it, after free ranging. You may have to teach them how to roost in the coop. I have a feeling they were doing it in trees before you came along.

    Yes, they did give us the coop. They left it open so that they could roost inside. They had moved the coop on Thursday, so the chickens were in the trees on Friday.
    And no, sadly, I do not have a horse, I found that picture on the internet. Google!
