After many moons of convincing and compromising, we will be renting chickens. Not my original plan, but hey! it's chickens! How can I make the transition from the farm into my coop as stress-free as possible? We will be picking them up, and I wasn't sure about putting them right in the coop after possibly not being in the same place for a while. I would need a bit of time to set up the run, and I don't want to let them free in the yard first thing. I don't really want to leave them in boxes, but I also am worried that shoving them into a coop together immediately would cause tension and stress between them. I don't want to let them free in the yard either, because I am worried that I wouldn't be able to pay them enough attention. What should I do? I'm talking about 3 barred rock laying hens.
