In the Brooder
- Oct 10, 2012
My chicks are 7 weeks old and they roam freely in the yard all day and sleep in their coop at night. Sometimes I want to pick one up to take a picture of it and it always ends up in a crazy chicken chase! I'm running after them the whole length of the yard and back again just trying to pick one up! If they're in their coop I'll stand outside their open door hoping to catch one if it comes near me, but they never do. They just wait me out. I could go all the way inside of their coop but then I'd get all of their poop and hay all over my butt. Do you have any tricks to catching your chickens that I can use?
