My 5 hens are upgrading from thier condo to a full size chicken house. We are in the process of retrofitting a shed into a coop. It will probably take us one more weekend to finish the project. The new coop is about 10'x10' with six nest boxes. It will be completely closed (by the time we're done working on it) with two framed doors with hardware cloth "windows" to protect them from predation (raccons in our neighborhood). Fear not, security will be tight (I lost one early on to a raccoon - we are taking all precautions to not loose another). The run is 40'x40' and is fenced with an 8' chain link fence. The fence is then extended another 2' in height with a non-barbed wire (this used to be an enclosure for 3 fallow deer that the previous owner kept as pets). It's the perfect chicken run area! My question is this: how do I convince them to roost in the new coop? How do I convince them that this is now home?
