In the Brooder
- Jul 19, 2021
I got chickens with my house I just bought. The day I moved in chicks hatched. Since the chickens don’t know me they are a little skittish around me. So I’ve never been able to catch the chicks. The mom has never let them in the coop ( they stay in the run). They are 4 weeks old now and the mom went in the coop, but they did not. My husband locked them up but didn’t see the chicks were hiding in the run. This am I went out to let the flock out and the chicks were outside the run snuggled together. Thankfully all still alive but I want them in the coop locked up. I don’t know how to get them to go in the coop and it’s stressing me out. Any ideas to help?
