My very first batch of chicks is 7 weeks old today, and I just finished the coop enough to move them in (still needs some caulking and painting on the outside). So today they went to their new home! I'm very excited to finally have them out of the brooder that they have been trying to escape from for weeks. But I haven't started building the run yet, so they're stuck inside the coop. Unless I can free range them at this age. If I let them out, will they come back to the coop to roost, or are they too young to do that? Also, if they're out and my dog, who has never met a chicken, decides to chase them, will they run back to the coop, or will they scatter and get lost? I was planning to keep the dog inside while the chickens are out, but if they're out all day long, that won't work for the dog. So I was hoping I could let them out for a few hours, and then call them back to the coop. They do come rushing over to me when I call, "here, chick, chick, chick!" because I always have noodles for them. Do you think if I went inside the coop and called them, they would come in? Thanks for helping me with this!
